Dr Michael Appleby - The Future of Livestock: Feeding the World Sustainably and Humanely

Thursday 7th February saw Dr Michael Appleby visit the university to present an interdisciplinary talk on the future of food and farming. The popularity of the event surprised even the Low Carbon Technologies DTC students who organised it, with students and staff from across the university filling LTB in the engineering building. The talk itself covered a wide range of subjects from animal welfare to individual dietary choices and sparked a host of questions and debates which led on into the evening.

The talk is also being featured as part of the World Universities Network's 'Adapting to Climate Change' seminar series. As part of this, a team from Media Services recorded the entire event which is now available on LUTube.
