Livestock, Environment and People Conference 2018

 

Date: 07 November 2018

Location: St Anne's College, Oxford

A MULTI-DISCIPLINARY RESEARCH CONFERENCE ON THE EFFECTS OF MEAT AND DAIRY CONSUMPTION ON POPULATION HEALTH, THE ECONOMY, SOCIETY AND THE ENVIRONMENT

 

 

Current worldwide food consumption practices are unsustainable. In particular, the food system is responsible for more than a quarter of all greenhouse gas emissions, while unhealthy diets and excess body weight are among the greatest contributors to premature mortality.

The LEAP conference, sponsored by the Wellcome Trust Our Planet Our Health initiative, will bring together researchers working on multiple aspects of meat and dairy production and consumption to consider its effects on population health, the economy, society and the environment. The aim of the conference is to provide a forum for the presentation of recent multidisciplinary research and build a community of researchers in this field to share evidence and tools to inform action.

The day will include two plenary speakers, contributed talks, and a poster session. In addition, we will provide a forum for people to maintain contact after the meeting and plan for this to be an annual event.

Keynote speakers

Professor Dame Theresa Marteau DBE, Director of the Behaviour and Health Research Unit at the University of Cambridge.

Professor Tim Benton, Dean of Strategic Research Initiatives at the University of Leeds.

Registration

Registration costs are £30 and £15 for students and members of the Our Planet Our Health initiative. The registration fee includes all refreshments during the conference and a buffet lunch.
