What should the future of meat look like, to you?
Do we radically alter our eating habits and lifestyles? Change how we produce food? Reimagine our relationship with nature and technology?
The choice must be informed by science, but it is also an ethical and emotional question.
What future do you support? What do your gut feelings say?
Why does this matter?
⅓ of greenhouse gas emissions come from food and agriculture. Over 2 billion people are hungry or food insecure. At the same time, we’re polluting and depleting the nutrients in the water and soils we depend on to feed the planet’s 8 billion people.
Meat and other foods sourced from animals stand out in this picture. Among the things we eat, they have the greatest carbon footprints, use the most land and are the largest contributors to water pollution. Yet many people love eating meat. It can supply important nutrients, is crucial to the livelihoods and cultures of billions of people, and plays a central role in the ecology of farming.
