Sustainable meat – Facts or Fables?
18 April 2018


The Future of Meat

In just two weeks time, the CIC’s 65th General Assembly will begin! The first discussion will focus on meat. Since the Industrial Revolution, meat has become an important part of our diets due to its ease of access and low-cost through the explosion of intensive industrial farming. Current meat consumption habits must change in order to support our sustainable future.

This session will be opened with two informational keynote speeches to set the scene for the panel discussion which will follow. Tover Cerulli, author of The Mindful Carnivore: A Vegetarian’s Hunt for Sustenance, which has earned praise from hunters, ecologists, and vegetarians alike, will begin the session with a talk on “Food, Values, and Stories for the Future”. Following Mr. Cerulli, Prof. John Fa will shortly discuss bushmeat with his presentation, “Bushmeat- what is that?”.

The panel discussion will include Mr. Cerulli and Prof. Fa, along with other international experts including Dr. Shane Mahoney, Mikael Antell, and Sven Wiszniewski, with Prof. Klaus Hackländer moderating.
