Compassion in World Farming invites you to hear more about our latest global investigation, Dead Zone, from our CEO Philip Lymbery and our expert campaign team.
Philip will share his experiences from around the world, uncovering the disastrous cost of factory farming and cheap meat to farm animals and wildlife. You will have the opportunity to ask Philip and the team about our new global campaign to expose the true impact of factory farming – and find out how you can get more involved.
Doors open at 12pm, for a 1pm start. The presentation will take place from 1pm-3pm. You are then invited to stay and take part in our campaign exhibition, and meet Philip and the rest of the team. Copies of Dead Zone: Where the Wild Things Were will also be available for purchase, and can be signed for you by Philip on the day.
We look forward to seeing you in London!
Emma Slawinski, Philip Lymbery and Phil Brooke
Philip Lymbery - CEO
Philip Lymbery is chief executive of Compassion in World Farming and Visiting Professor at the University of Winchester. He played leading roles in many major animal welfare reforms, including Europe-wide bans on veal crates for calves and barren battery cages for laying hens.
Described as one of the food industry’s most influential people, he has spearheaded Compassion’s engagement work with over 700 food companies worldwide, as a result of which over three quarters of a billion farm animals are set to benefit every year.
Emma Slawinski - Director of Campaigns
Emma became our Head of Campaigns and Advocacy in 2012, leading her team with determination and fervour. She is known for the passion she puts into each individual campaign, while always keeping the overarching objectives of the organisation at the forefront of the campaigning agenda. As a committed campaigner and animal welfarist, Emma went on to become the European Programmes Director at World Animal Protection, returning to Compassion as our Director of Campaigns, in 2016.
Phil Brooke - Welfare and Education Development Manager
Phil first became involved as an environmental science student in the mid-70s, plastering Compassion posters around his university campus. After teaching Biology for 20 years, he became Compassion’s education officer in 1999. Since then, his role has evolved into helping to develop our animal welfare information base, along with lobbying and media work. Phil’s encyclopedic knowledge of almost all aspects of farm animal welfare makes him the go-to person at Compassion for technical information.
