The Rise Of Veganism: The End Of Animal Farming? Sydney
This is the last Outside the Square event of the year, asking tricky questions such as: Is a vegan diet sustainable? Is an exclusively plant-based diet really better for the planet? The University of Sydney’s sharpest academics and experts tackle a range of challenging issues with an audience who comment and ask questions using their phones. It’s a unique version of Q&A. Plus there’s drinks, food, and fun! Located at the Old Rum Store in Chippendale, join in the conversation with a leading diet researcher, an agri-food and environmental expert and a political scientist committed to animal welfare as they consider what the rise of veganism might mean for us all. Find event details by searching ‘Outside the Square’ on the university’s website.
