Description

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?

Joseph Poore graduated with an MA and MPhil in Land Economy from the University of Cambridge, where he now runs the annual Denman Lecture series. Following this he worked for 4 years leading strategy consultancy on projects addressing resource, allocation, profitability, growth and risk. Currently he is a student on the Environmental Research Doctoral Training Partnership at Oxford University. You can find a link to his most recent paper here: http://science.sciencemag.org/content/360/6392/987

Free wine, soft drinks and vegan food will be provided - with a great opportunity for networking after the talk.
