This session will focus on meat and dairy consumption and specifically, meat alternatives. Panelists will include individuals from Impossible Foods, the Meatless Monday Movement science advisors at Johns Hopkins and a representative from the Service for Environment and Climate in the City of Ghent, Belgium.
Panelists will discuss the future of the global food system in the face of climate change and what actions are being taken to shift global diets towards sustainability and health-minded. Audience members will have the chance to drive the conversation through polled questions, which the panelists will then debate. They will focus on the implications of audience poll results for food security and climate, and what more needs to be done.
