Event description

Description

There is an increasing evidence base of the benefits of plant based eating for CVD, cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, obesity and more. Equally, animal agriculture is seen as the biggest ‘elephant in the room’ at most global depletion network meetings worldwide, as the evidence of impact is now undeniable. Finally, as we evolve as a species, our responsibilities in the treatment of other species as a means to human ends is ever more questioned.

The first of its kind, this exciting free conference is aimed at educators and students, looking at health, social justice and environmental issues around food and animal use. QMUL cordially invites you to join this intelligent and lively debate, providing an opportunity to pose questions you always wanted answered to our very distinguised panel.
