Have you ever looked at your dinner and wondered how big a carbon foodprint it has? 1kg of beef has a carbon emission equivalent to driving a car for 63 miles - this could get you to Nottingham! We will explore the environmental impact of veganism and if it can save the world! We will also devour the food science behind veganism and explore whether or not it is good for your body.

Can Veganism Save the World?

Dr. Milena Buchs (Associate Professor in Sustainability, Economics and Low Carbon Transitions)
We often hear eating meat and dairy is bad for the climate. Let's take a look at some of the facts - how much carbon can one save on a vegan diet? Do we all need to go vegan to save the planet? Which other considerations do we need to make to reduce the carbon footprints of our diets?

Is it Thyme for a Vegan Diet?

Dr Caroline Orfila (Associate Professor of Nutrition)
Vegan foods mean big business! But are they as nutritious as they portrayed to be? With a few case studies, the talk will explore how vegan foods are made, their nutritional value, and debate the pros and cons of a vegan diet from a nutritional perspective.

<Disclaimer- I will not promote or discourage a vegan diet. I am a scientist and will present my science-based opinion on the topic>
