On 5th – 6th of October 2017 the Extinction and Livestock Conference under the motto “Moving to a flourishing food system for wildlife, farm animals and us” took place in London. The international conference explored the devastating impact of livestock production on animals, people and the planet and the need for a global move away from intensive farming.
Over 500 experts, campaigners, policy-makers and business leaders from around the world attended the event, organised by Compassion in World Farming and WWF-UK. Over the two-day event, renowned speakers such as Raj Patel and Hans Herren took to the stage of the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in London to discuss how intensive livestock systems are at the heart of so many problems affecting health, food security, biodiversity, the environment and animal welfare.
Also SAT CEO Programme Janet Maro was among these experts talking about <Agroecology working in Africa>. She gave insights into the organisation’s experiences working with small-scale farmers on agroecology in Tanzania and how agroecology changed their lives.
The participation is a great honour and shows us that SAT’s work and project activities are internationally recognized and appreciated.
