A 'Less Meat' Panel with Cambridge Forum for Sustainability and the Environment

Wednesday 9 March: 8:00pm - 9:00pm

Mill Lane Lecture Rooms , 8 Mill Lane, CB2 1RW

If current trends continue, shifts in global tastes towards Western diets coupled with population growth are predicted to double meat production by 2050. These changes will not only influence people’s health, they will also impact the environment.

Our distinguished panel comprising Professor Theresa Marteau, Professor Andrew Balmford, Bojana Bajzelj, each who research different aspects of food, consumption and waste, will explore both the arguments surrounding reduced meat consumption and the role that policy could and should play in changing what people eat alongside Julian Huppert, former MP for Cambridge and chair, food historian, Bee Wilson.

Join us for an entertaining and informative hour.

We aim to support public policy research across Cambridge University, working with colleagues in science, social science, the arts and humanities, to apply new thinking to public policy problems and promote research and analysis into the public policy process. We hope to connect and raise the profile of existing public policy related work across the University and support collaborative research that includes policy development in a range of subject areas.
