Extinction and Livestock: Moving to a flourishing food system for wildlife, farm animals and us

Thursday 5 - Friday 6 October
QE II Conference Centre, Broad Sanctuary, Westminster, London SW1P 3EE

​​This international conference, organised by Compassion in World Farming in partnership with the University of Winchester, WWF​ and others.

Livestock production and its use of finite resources is devastating biodiversity and pushing wildlife to the brink of extinction. If nature is to recover we need to move towards sustainable food and farming systems.

It will bring together diverse interests – conservation and livestock production, land and water use, the environment and climate change, ethics and economics, healthy and sustainable diets, food security, food business– and act as a catalyst for future collaboration and solution development.

Key speakers already confirmed include award-winning author, Dr Carl Safina, World Food Prize winner; Hans Herren, and Dr Hilal Elver, UN Special Rapporteur on the right to food.
