The Association of European Manufacturers of Sporting Ammunition (AFEMS) and the World Forum on Shooting Activities (WFSA) are organizing the Symposium “The Sustainable Use of Lead Ammunition in Hunting and Sports Shooting: Facts and Emotions” which will be held at the Sofitel in Brussels Europe, Place Jourdan 1, Brussels Belgium, on 20 October 2015.
The Symposium will focus on the sustainable use of lead in ammunition and its impact on both the environment and human health. It will analyse ballistic features of both lead and non-lead ammunition and it will also provide an overview of the current legislation on lead in ammunition both at the European and International level.
The Symposium will enable delegates to meet a wide cross-section of key leaders in hunting and sports shooting activities, in the fields of research, science, and legislation. The panels will include a number of distinguished speakers, thus providing a unique opportunity to establish key contacts, facilitate high-quality discussion, and exchange views on proposed policy and strategy.
Interpretation services from English, French, German and Italian into English, German and Italian will be provided during the working sessions
