We are delighted to announce that we will be partnering with another impact focussed animal advocacy organisation before the year is out. We are supporting Sentience Politics with dedicated research to assist them in their selection of a new project as they campaign to improve the lives of animals in Switzerland.
We have had a fantastic start to the year so far, completing research on behalf of both Sinergia Animal and Advocates for Animals through our Ask Prioritisation service, the results of which will be released in the coming weeks. Our recent stakeholder evaluation survey revealed a demand for, and appreciation of, our service, with the majority of animal advocacy organisations surveyed rating our mission as ‘valuable’ or ‘highly valuable’ to the movement.
Sentience Politics is a Switzerland-based organisation that pursues institutional change to minimise the suffering of non-human animals as effectively as possible. Sentience Politics creates impact by proposing initiatives through Switzerland’s system of direct democracy, as well as working with policy makers in government. Currently, Sentience Politics are promoting popular initiatives to abolish factory farming at the national level and to grant basic rights to non-human primates at the regional level.
“At Sentience Politics we care a lot about impact. This is why we are incredibly excited to be collaborating with Animal Ask and to figure out what the next steps for truly progressive Swiss animal policies could be.”
Silvano Lieger, Executive Director, Sentience Politics
Sentience Politics aims to achieve the greatest possible impact for animals, which makes them ideal partners for our Ask Prioritisation service. We will assist them in the coming months with research towards the selection of their next project (see more about our Ask Prioritisation research process in this video). We will cross compare different animal interventions and ultimately identify the ask that is most likely to have the greatest impact for animals overall.
This is an exciting time for us as we complete our pilot year and continue to learn and develop our research process. We will conclude this work in October 2021 and look forward to sharing our findings with you.
