The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of €13,242 (approximately $14,961 at the time of conversion) to Eurogroup for Animals to support a two-day International Broiler Advocacy Meeting in Brussels in June 2017. During the meeting, participants—which included representatives from various European animal welfare advocacy groups—discussed issues and strategy related to broiler chicken welfare campaigns. Our funds covered associated organizing costs, including travel expenses for representatives of smaller advocacy groups. In preparation for the meeting, Eurogroup for Animals conducted an inventory of broiler welfare campaigns and an initial analysis of the relevant economic, legislative, and policy climate in Europe. Recent cage-free campaigns have been successful in Europe, and we hope a convening of this kind will facilitate collaboration and knowledge-sharing among various European groups as they consider launching new campaigns related to broiler chicken welfare.

This is a discretionary grant.
