According to the United Nations, 14 to 18% of global emissions come from livestock agriculture alone. The structure of the food industry is wildly unsustainable. What might the future of food look like? Join Carolyn Steel, architect and author of Sitopia; Kath Dalmeny, chief executive of Sustain; and Dee Woods, award-winning cook and Food Ethics Council member (as well as Sustain trustee) to discuss possibilities.

Chaired by Dr Shailaja Fennell, University of Cambridge.
