Djurens parti


Sweden

Djurens parti was founded in 2014. We believe that there is need to turn away from an anthropocentric view, for we are dependent on nature. By acting accordingly we will preserve ecosystems and species and enhance human well-being. Djurens parti wants to bring forth the perspective of animals that are often neglected and seldomly considered when building a society that highly affects their lives.

The first version of our Party Programme is focused on our policies for the animals. We believe that a stronger legal protection must be put in place, which acknowledges the unique value of each sentient individual irrespective of species and where compassion is the guiding principle. Version two of our Party Programme, to be published during 2016, will extend to include our policies for the environment and health areas.
