Is industrialised livestock the New Coal? A deep dive into the world of animal agriculture and Just Transition
November 25, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pmFree
Animal agriculture is arguably one of the biggest issues of our time. Responsible for at least 14.5% of all GHG emissions worldwide, animal agriculture is exacerbating the climate emergency, water crisis, gender divide, biodiversity loss and food-related health disorders.
Why is animal agriculture still not pitted alongside other carbon-intensive industries as a major climate change contributor? Is animal agriculture an exceptional sector which needs a different approach? How do we ensure an equitable transition to fair, healthy and sustainable food systems for all? Can lessons from a Just energy transition help guide the path for the New Coal?
Join in as we talk through these pertinent questions in our interactive panel discussion titled, ‘Is industrialised livestock the New Coal? A deep dive into the world of animal agriculture and Just Transition.’ The event will be hosted at the EAT@Home virtual convening on 25 November at 14:00-15:30 UTC.
