HOW TO DO CRUELTY-FREE WORSHIP & RITUALS
It goes without saying that worship should be in its very essence, cruelty-free and not harm any living being. There isn’t only one religion where animal cruelty isn’t done.

With the growing number of vegan and health-conscious travelers, creating a more vegan-friendly hotel, guesthouse, or home stay is likely to create traction to your space.

HUMAN-WILDLIFE CONFLICT ISSUES FACING THE HIMALAYA

Wildlife have lived in the wilderness for millennia but as the human population increases drastically and they start encroaching on forest lands, tension begins to mount between humans and wildlife. Hu- mans often resort to cruelty in order to get rid of wildlife from what they believe is their land without realising that wildlife have lived there all along before humans encroached. Experts discuss ways in which the human wildlife conflict can be minimised or eliminated completely while giving animals their true right to their land but also allowing humans to have a right to basic housing.

SOLUTIONS FOR STRAY ANIMALS
Stray animals are a great concern in many developing countries and Nepal is no exception. There are many ways in which the stray animal problem can be solved. The main key to reducing the stray animal population in your community is to set up regular spay and neuter programs in your community. The issues that may arise however are that people within the community are often not educated on the subject and may resist the procedure for their pet based on empathy for the pet while not giving much thought to dumping any offspring that may come along back on the streets. Not only that but we can even make some plant-based food for animals for instant dogs who can not only survive on it but can thrive on it. This workshop will include all the brainstorming and idea-sharing for all these things to come up with a solution.
