Find tangible solutions to food sustainability issues at A Well-Fed World Global Food Sustainability Conference
Are you thinking of moving towards a plant-based diet to help world food production and distribution become more sustainable? As organisers of some of Europe’s biggest vegan lifestyle events, VegfestUK attempt to address the underlying issues at their first-ever Global Food Sustainability Conference at their upcoming Brighton event.
With kind and generous support from USA-based hunger relief and vegan advocacy organisation A Well-Fed World, VegfestUK is certainly thinking big on the conference – a number of high-profile speakers in the field of food sustainability have come on board, and a 16-page conference booklet on all talks, speakers and a few suggested solutions is now available to view online at www.brighton.vegfest.co.uk/sustainability.
VegfestUK organiser Tim Barford added, “I’ve always been inspired to try to do something positive about these issues – they’re so huge and often completely overwhelming. But it’s important to consider that some small efforts and changes in your life can actually make a difference. I’m thrilled to see the first vegan Global Food Sustainability conference taking place at VegfestUK Brighton this year. And I hope to see many more in myfastweightloss.net.”
