MAIN PRIORITIES OF THE ALION INSTITUTE
Study and explore relationships between the animal and the human world
People have become the biggest enemy of nature and consequently to ourselves due to the pollution by the production of plastics, chemicals, sewage, gases, earthquake etc. As we prioritize the economy and thus disregard nature. By studying history and its influence on human consciousness, the human mind is analyzed in relation to the relationship between man and nature-animal, the meaning of extinction of animal species in spiritual sense, the reason for the man losing contact with nature, with himself, etc.
Protection of the environment, protection of animal species and dissemination of knowledge about the correct attitude towards animals and nature
By analyzing and optimizing socio-economic links between humans and animals, the Institute contributes to economic and human development while protecting the environment and biodiversity. The focus is mainly on the well-being and the health of animals, because they are thought to be sentient beings with their needs, which need to be understood, accepted and respected in order to establish the correct attitude towards them and the environment in which people live.
