Organiser's description (via the Guardian)

Join George Monbiot live in London or via livestream, as he discusses his new book, Regenesis.

Farming is the world's greatest cause of environmental destruction - and the one we are least prepared to talk about. We criticise urban sprawl, but farming sprawls across thirty times as much land. We have ploughed, fenced and grazed great tracts of the planet, felling forests, killing wildlife, and poisoning rivers and oceans to feed ourselves. Yet millions still go hungry.

In Regenesis, Monbiot seeks out the people who are unlocking revolutionary methods to shift our relationship to the living world. He draws on a trove of research to set out a plan for a new system that would restore large areas of our land to the wild, draw down carbon, and give everyone access to healthy and affordable food.

Join him for a discussion of his profoundly hopeful vision for the future of food, and the hidden biological universe beneath our feet which could transform what we eat and how we grow it. He’ll be in conversation with journalist and broadcaster Lucy Siegle, and will also be answering your questions in this livestreamed event.
