In the first episode of our podcast our CEO Patrick Holden speaks to journalist and author George Monbiot about the future of farming in the UK, and the meat versus plant-based diet debate.
We begin with an issue that has sparked much debate in recent months: What constitutes a sustainable diet? And in particular, what is the role of livestock in sustainable farming systems? This conversation was recorded at the Oxford Real Farming conference (2020) following a lively debate on the topic of sustainable and healthy diets.
