The Global Forest Coalition’s campaign against unsustainable livestock production invites you to participate in the next edition of our webinar series on unsustainable livestock farming and its alternatives. This time, we will focus on unsustainable livestock and feedstock production globally, in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and the recovery from it. The webinar aims to reflect on the question: “How can consumers, producers, policy-makers and NGOs (both in the Global South and North), support resilient alternatives to unsustainable livestock farming?”
Speakers from Latin America, Asia, Africa & Europe will dig deeper into the different strategies and approaches required to halt the expansion of agro-industrial livestock farming, and to support the diverse range of more sustainable alternatives to this model.
