More or less meat? Building a dialogue to reduce meat consumption

Environment Themed

What’s on offer?

A panel of experts will address some of the most common issues raised by meat eaters, focusing on health, environmental and economic advantages of this choice. It will also aim to create a dialogue among people embracing different food choices, promoting a better understanding of people’s motivations about different lifestyles, above and beyond reciprocal stereotypes.

What’s it about?

Can we all get meat – free? How difficult is it? Is it dangerous? Why should we do it? What advantages does this bring to the individual and the society? Meat reduction is a familiar theme nowadays, but it is still met with resistance, despite the several advantages it brings.
