|The state of farmed animals in Uganda and how traditional African society beliefs could play a key role to reduce animal suffering|
|Nabaasa Innocent Amumpaire via Zoom|
Nabaasa Innocent Kashobera's session will focus on the state of farmed animals in Uganda and how traditional African society beliefs could play a key role in reducing animal suffering. She will share about veganism in the Ugandan context and how technological advancement is leading to increased animal suffering, a practice that isn't predominantly African. She will share about breaking barriers to introduce veganism in a country where 75% of the population depends on agriculture for livelihood, including animal agriculture, and how she is slowly bursting the cultural and religious norms about animal product consumption.
