One Welfare Posters

One Welfare Posters

One Welfare is a new discipline evolving from the recognition of the interconnection between humans, animals, and the environment, underpinned by animal welfare science, social and environmental science. The Covid 19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of this connectedness, from the origins of the virus to the solace that animals and the natural environment have provided to us during tumultuous times.

Creativity and innovation are at the heart of science and poetry and the spoken word provides a gateway to reflect on science and society. OWLET is a project partnership between the School of Veterinary Medicine and Poetry Ireland, funded by Science Foundation Ireland, to explore One Welfare through the lens of poetry. The project has created an illustrated booklet of commissioned and non-commissioned poems, launched on World Animal Day 4 October 2021. In addition four posters – two of the commissioned poems and two infographics are available and can be downloaded below.  The project team also have a small budget to print, package and post copies of the posters to 50 vet clinics - if you would like to avail of this, please complete the form at the link below to provide the project team with the name and address of your clinic:
