Event Details

Join Tim Lusher, the Guardian’s head of food, and a panel of speakers including vegan YouTube presenter and writer Rachel Ama; co-founder of the Pasture for Life Association John Meadley; and academic Joseph Poore, as they discuss food, farming and the impact on our planet.

The environmental impact of agriculture is impossible to deny: a 2018 study showed that 83% of the world’s farmland is being used to rear livestock for meat and dairy, which accounts for a mere 18% of the world’s calories. In Brazil, deforestation of the Amazon to rear cattle is already having dangerous consequences

There are now over half a million vegans in the UK, making it a fast-growing lifestyle movement. But is a vegan diet healthy and good for the planet? Vegan alternatives are often loaded with salt and additives, and intensely farmed soya, maize and almonds use a huge amount of water on farms.

If we all became vegan, would we see a shift in the climate crisis? What effect would a plant-based diet have on the farming industry? Is veganism an accessible option for all of society? Our panel discuss these questions and more.
