The Future of Meat? (NYC)

News Story

Did you know Americans eat four times as much meat than the global average? On Friday, March 6, Dyson will examine this phenomenon at a one-day conference focusing on sustainability in the era of global heating.

Meat has long been a primary staple of the American diet, as Americans eat four times as much meat than the global average. Yet, the sustainability of meat consumption has been increasingly called into question, as the rise of global meat eating can potentially cause great harm to the natural world. At the same time, many people around the world are protein-deficient and nutritionists argue that meat can help fill that need.

Thus, we ask: what is the future of meat?

Join the Dyson College Institute for Sustainability and the Environment when they answer this question at their fourth annual Resilience Summit. It’s a one-day conference that will include prominent keynote speakers and panels focusing on Meat and Climate, Consumption, and the Future of Protein—bringing together varying perspectives on regenerative and plant-based meat, the relationship between livestock production and climate change, nutrition and consumer diets, the future role of animals in the agricultural system, and how will the world get its protein in the future:

The summit’s keynote will feature Pace President Marvin Krislov, who will interview research scholar Tim Searchinger of Princeton University, and Nicolette Niman, rancher and author of Defending Beef.
