One of the best aspects of the lecture series is the discussion afterwards over drinks and vegan food. If you would like to join us after the lecture, you are more than welcome!

Food’s planetary environmental impacts and an integrated solution.

Recently more and more research appears about the impact of our food on the environment. Join us in this talk exploring a solution to food’s staggering toll on earth. Based on data on 40,000 farms in 120 countries we will discuss mandatory environmental labels – displaying emissions, pesticide toxicity, water use, and impact on biodiversity. How can we make producers accountable for their impacts; support effective taxes and subsidies; and drive the essential transition away from meat and dairy?
