Chief executive of Compassion in World Farming Philip Lymbery sets out his vision for feeding more people in a world of shrinking resources that is seeing climate change and extinction of species. The talk will be illustrated with photography of some of the world’s most charismatic wildlife.

Lymbery says we could feed everyone well whilst taking the pressure off hard-pressed landscapes, leaving forests to give us oxygen and restoring soils for future harvest. He explains how we could achieve this whilst freeing animals from factory farms and saving the world’s most wonderful wild animals such as jaguars, elephants and penguins.

Lymbery is author of Dead Zone: Where the Wild Things Were and Farmageddon: The True Cost of Meat. He has been involved in many high-profile animal welfare reforms including Europe-wide bans on veal crates for calves and barren battery cages for laying hens. He is a winner of the Golden Dove for Peace award for making a significant contribution to the cause of peace. Here he talks to BBC journalist Nick Higham, who was the BBC’s first ever media correspondent and, until recently, presenter of Meet the Author on the BBC news channel.

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.
