From Brisbane Powerhouse, May 1st 2018
Meat. We eat it, we farm it, we love it, we hate it. Australia is currently one of the world leaders in the export of commercial livestock and yet is simultaneously the third fastest growing vegan consumer market globally. The topic of meat production and consumption carries many considerations: jobs, economy, health, ethics, the environment, culture and more.
What impact is the growing rise of veganism having on the Australian economy? What are the health impacts of a meat-based diet? How does meat production contribute to climate change? What are our ethical obligations to our fellow animals?
Politics in the Pub is a FREE, Q&A style debate which tackles the most pressing contemporary issues for both Australia and the world. This event is proudly supported by the Patrons of New Farm.
