Description

The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Vegetarianism and Veganism invites you to its next meeting:

Eating away at climate change with negative emissions: Repurposing UK agricultural land to meet climate goals

9:30am-10:30am Wednesday 1 May, Room C, 1 Parliament Street (room subject to change so please look out for updates near the event)

A presentation and discussion with Dr Helen Harwatt of Harvard Law School.

New research from Harvard models for the first time a Paris-compliant UK agricultural system, taking into account its particular topography.

The research details how the UK could reforest a portion of agricultural land, soaking up the equivalent of 9 years’ UK greenhouse gas emissions and boosting self-sufficiency at the same time, providing enough protein and calories for the UK population.

Dr Helen Harwatt is a fellow at Harvard Law School. She is an international award-winning researcher and scientific author specialising in the field of planetary health.
