The End of Animal Farming – a talk and Q&A with Jacy Reese

11th September

Public figures from Jamie Oliver to Richard Branson have predicted that the future of food is animal-free. But how do we actually get from here to there? 

While most of us have seen headlines about cultured meat, what could this actually mean in practice for animal farming?

In 'The End of Animal Farming', Jacy Reese, co-founder of the Sentience Institute, will outline an evidence-based roadmap to a humane, ethical, efficient food system where slaughterhouses are obsolete. 

This wide-ranging talk will be ideal for anyone interested in the science of cultured meat, the abolition of farmed animal suffering, the psychology of animal-free products or what the future of food might look like. There will be lots of time for questions at the end.

Jacy Reese is Research Director at the Sentience Institute. He has written in outlets including Quartz, Salon, and Vox, and presented on these topics in 15 countries. He is the author of the forthcoming book, The End of Animal Farming.

Effective Altruism Brighton is part of the growing Effective Altruism movement, dedicated to evidence-based approaches to doing the most good.
