Description

This event is a part of Department of Geography seminar series.


Animals in the frame: what does a sustainable livestock future look like?

Food connects us to some of the most important environmental, societal and ethical issues of the day – climate change, biodiversity loss and water scarcity, hunger in conjunction with obesity, and inequality. These problems are increasingly well recognised. There is general agreement that something needs to be done – but there is far less consensus about what that ‘something’ should be. Different interest groups have different ideas about how whether our problems are technical, requiring technological solutions, or whether there is a need for more fundamental changes in human behaviour and in the way human societies and economies are organised. Nowhere are these disagreements more apparent than in debates around the future of livestock production and associated meat and dairy consumption. In this talk Tara Garnett takes a look at different approaches to analysing and addressing the livestock ‘problem’ and explores the values and ideologies that underpin them.
