Inclusion Expert, Joy O'Neill (CF 2020), has been asked to be part of an international working group looking at developing international minimum standards for researchers when working with animals in Animal Assisted Interventions settings i.e care farms or animal therapy sessions. The working group and associated project are being run by IAHAIO (International Association of Human Animal Interactions Organisations). Joy has been selected for the 2023/24 Climate Outreach Climate Ambassadors Programme. The programme offers focused training and support for climate scientists and other experts to enable them to talk with wider audiences about climate change and related topics.
