- To support the "End the Cage Age" Campaign working to end the use of cages in Europe.
The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $900,000 to Compassion in World Farming to support its “End the Cage Age” campaign in the UK and Europe. The campaign will seek to end the use of cages and crates for all farmed animal species in the UK and Europe through advocacy and outreach, including an EU-wide citizens’ ballot measure. The funds will support staffing needs related to the campaign in six regional EU offices as well as its headquarters in the United Kingdom; marketing, social media, and exhibition activities; advocacy work; investigations; as well as technical and operational costs over the next two years.
This grant falls within Open Philanthropy's work on farm animal welfare, and is one of several other recent grants made to strengthen the farm animal welfare movement in Europe.
