Current worldwide food consumption practices are unsustainable. In particular, the food system is responsible for more than a quarter of all greenhouse gas emissions, while unhealthy diets and excess body weight are among the greatest contributors to premature mortality.
The LEAP conference, sponsored by the Wellcome Trust Our Planet Our Health initiative, will bring together researchers working on multiple aspects of meat and dairy production and consumption to consider its effects on population health, the economy, society and the environment and aims to build a community of researchers in this field to share evidence and tools to inform action.
The 2023 LEAP conference will include two keynote lectures as well as seminars and poster abstract sessions. Topics will include natural and social science research on environmental sustainability, diets and health, dietary
change, meat substitutes and rural livelihoods.
