Brighter Green’s Executive Director Mia MacDonald will be speaking on climate change and animal agriculture at the Seed Experience in N.Y.C. on May 18, 2013. Details:
Shifting the Global Debate: Climate Change & Animal Agriculture
Mia MacDonald’s talk will use facts, images, and documentary video to provide fascinating and compelling evidence of how animal agriculture is at the root of a host of environmental problems, including climate change, deforestation in the Amazon, desertification, and water stress. She will address how even as awareness of these realities is growing in the U.S., global meat and other animal products consumption is soaring and expanding into markets in Asia, Latin America, and Africa. However, she will also show how changing our agricultural practices and eating habits and adjusting policies and practices accordingly can be a part of the solution.
The Seed Experience features two days of vegan exploration. From the organizers’ text: “Nourish your taste buds on scrumptious plant-based food from New York’s famed vegan restaurants – the best in the world! Get inspired by world-renowned speakers, champion athletes, and top chefs. Provoke new thoughts with award-winning films and their directors. Discover the vast market of cruelty-free products and services.
