Event in association with

Entomologist, farmer and world expert in biological control of crop pests Professor Hans Herren explains his vision for a world free of hunger and misery where everyone can live in peace and in harmony with nature.

Herren argues that we produce enough food to feed the world’s population twice over yet much of it is cheap products with low nutritional value grown at great cost to the environment and large parts of the world go hungry. He says farmers in the developing world need support to grow healthy food based on sustainable agricultural practices free of chemical pesticides and fertilisers. Herren says a sustainable approach to food production is the only way to feed the world in the face of climate change and increasing scarcity of resources.

Herren is president and chief executive of the Washington-based Millennium Institute, which aims to improve the welfare of individuals on every continent by working with stakeholders to meet the challenges of sustainable development, and founder of the Biovision Foundation for Ecological Development. He won the World Food Prize and the Tyler Prize for Environmental Achievement for his work on biological control in Africa that averted a food crisis and saved an estimated 20 million lives. Here he is in conversation with Philip Lymbery, chief executive of Compassion in World Farming, and author of Farmageddon: The True Cost of Meat and Dead Zone: Where the Wild Things Were.

This event is part of a series under the banner Pasture to Plate that look at the environmental and health benefits of raising food on pasture and getting it to the consumer quickly through a short supply chain.
