The Center for Environmental & Animal Protection

New York University will formally launch its Center for Environmental and Animal Protection (CEAP), a research unit to inform policy related to these societal and scientific concerns, on Fri., Sept. 21, 3:30-5:30 p.m., at the university’s Kimmel Center for University Life, Rosenthal Pavilion (60 Washington Square South, 10th Floor).

CEAP’s mission is to provide academic leadership for research and policy-making in addressing critical issues at the intersection of environmental and animal protection.

The event’s speakers, who will include Dale Jamieson, the center’s founding director, as well as Jennifer Jacquet and Colin Jerolmack, professors in NYU’s Department of Environmental Studies, and Cybele Raver, NYU’s deputy provost, will discuss the origins of CEAP and the role that it will play in the NYU and larger research community. 

The event will also include remarks from Keya Chatterjee, executive director of US Climate Action Network, Daniel Pauly, principal investigator for the Sea Around Us at the University of British Columbia’s Institute for the Oceans and Fisheries, and Peter Singer, a professor of bioethics at Princeton University.

Presentations will focus on the centrality of interdisciplinary research in these fields and links between high-quality academic research and the needs of the NGO community working in environmental and animal protection. 

“The linkage between environmental and animal protection, though it might seem obvious, is also unusual but of increasing importance in a world in which species are being driven to extinction and often represented by just a few individuals,” notes Jamieson.

CEAP researchers come from a broad range of fields and disciplines—and are already addressing the climate impacts of animal agriculture, animal well-being, trade in endangered species, and the environmental and animal impacts of aquaculture.
