The referendum for animals is a citizen initiative supported by about twenty associations fighting for animal rights. Several French personalities have joined this fight such as Stéphane Bern, Nicolas Sirkis, Cauet, Caroline Vigneaux or Rémi Gaillard to name a few. But also entrepreneurs such as Xavier Niel (Free), Marc Simoncini (Meetic), Jacques-Antoine Granjon (Vente-privée.com) as well as the journalist Hugo Clément have decided to support this action.

Why does the Lyon International Business School support the Animal Referendum?
The launch of the Animal Referendum is an important moment because it illustrates the transformation of values.
