Eating meat, especially processed meat, has been the topic of huge controversy recently – in October 2015 a World Health Organisation (WHO) report linked it to cancer. There is also growing awareness of the impact rearing cattle for beef has on climate change, as highlighted by the current Meat Free May campaign run by Friends of the Earth.

However, what are the facts? As part of the Eat Cambridge festival, Cambridge Carbon Footprint are holding a talk and panel discussion that will investigate the health, welfare and environmental issues related to our ever increasing consumption of meat. Are there solutions out there? How might we eat in the future? What technologies, policies and behaviour change might help?

This free talk and debate will be held on Tuesday 17th May at 7.30pm in the ‘The Divinity School’ at St John’s College. Speakers will include leading figures on food sustainability Tara Garnett (founder of the Food Climate Research Network) and Clare Oxborrow (Head of the Land, Food and Water Team at Friends of the Earth). Local expert Angelika von Heimendahl (Grazier and owner of Camcattle) and dietician Carine Henry will be offering their expertise on this global challenge.
