Description

This event is a part of the Festival of Debate: www.festivalofdebate.com

Palm oil is almost everywhere -food, fuel or cosmetics- and its use probably leads to thousands of burnt forest and dying wildlife. So, certified palm oil comes to the rescue. But how sustainable is it? This event explores the implications of palm oil certification on the people, forests and wildlife.

Speakers:
Michael Guindon (ZSL London)
Maud Salber (Rainforest Foundation UK)
Dr Monica Di Gregorio (University of Leeds)
Catherine Barton (Chester Zoo)
Dr Johan Oldekop (University of Manchester)
