LEAP conference 2020



Welcome to the conference 

We are delighted to welcome you to the third Livestock, Environment and People (LEAP) Conference. This year we are online in response to global events and hope that we can bring a similar feel to this years conference despite us all being in different locations. 

We are lucky to have two excellent plenary speakers again this year, Prof. Jennie Macdiarmid, Professor in Sustainable Nutrition and Health at the University of Aberdeen and Henry Dimbleby, lead non-executive board member of the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) and leader of the UK's National Food Strategy who we thank for generously sharing their time and expertise. At the heart of this meeting are the people who submitted abstracts and we are delighted to welcome all our contributors from across the UK and beyond. We hope that the range of topics will provide a stimulus for interdisciplinary discussions and perhaps the start of new collaborations, leading to a network of researchers focused on the role of meat and dairy in future food systems.

On behalf of the whole LEAP team, thank you for joining us and we hope that you will have an interesting and rewarding day.

With best wishes,

Professor Sir Charles Godfray, Co-Director of LEAP
