Animal Advocacy Camp will be a practical, attendee-led event, where YOU get to set the agenda and host discussions about what YOU want to talk about. Over the two days of Animal Advocacy Camp, you can:

  • Share your stories, ideas, and experiences.
  • Learn from the experiences of others.
  • Discover the wealth of resources available
  • Host powerful dialogues about issues and strategies.
  • Create and strengthen relationships.
  • Become a stronger and more effective advocate for animals.

How it works
The agenda for each day (apart from the opening and closing talks) will be set by the people at the event during the morning agenda setting. This means that you can bring your own ideas for a topic and add it to the agenda on Saturday or Sunday morning. Your topic can be anything you want to discuss with other passionate activists — ideas, tools, support, and so on.

Advance registration is required and costs $15 for both days. Register now at

Morning coffee and snacks are complimentary. Lunch options are available at reasonable cost. Check out lunch options at Stop UBC Animal Research will also be selling vegan baked goods and will have a table with our merchandise.
