GIY Food Matters: Plant Powered & Meat Free (Saturday 7th September)

Where: Theatre Royal

How Much: Free but must be booked through

Time: 2:30pm - 3:30pm

The Lancet Report suggests a doubling in the consumption of foods such as fruits, vegetables, legumes and nuts, and a greater than 50% reduction in global consumption of sugars and red meat by 2050 to meet SDG’s & The Paris Agreement.  Is a plant based diet really better for us and the planet?  How healthy are some of the meat-alts in reality?  Is meat unfairly being blamed for all our ills?   What are the implications of a Lancet world view for Irish food production and can we adapt?  Could this be a moment in the sun for Irish horticulture? Join GIY’s Michael Kelly and a panel of experts as we discuss.
