The consumption of meat is still a hot topic these days. Current Dutch farming industry is harmful to animal, man and society and is ethically irresponsible. This was argued in an essay signed by more than hundred Dutch full professors. An UNEP-report about the environmental impacts of consumption and production also showed that meat consumption treatens the global environment.

Prof. dr. Arnold Tukker, lead author of the UNEP-report, will discuss how harmful meat consumption is for ourselves and our environment, and what the necessary measures to be taken are.
