Viva! Farming: Vegan farming for a healthy planet and turning farmers into allies for animal justice

Viva! Farming coordinator and PhD researcher, Kerri Waters, will explain how transforming the way we use land and ending animal farming presents crucial opportunities to solve the climate crisis and create a kinder world for animals. This talk will explore the options currently available for farmers and how the changes to UK agricultural policy can be applied to foster vegan farming and food production. Kerri will introduce her doctoral research looking at animal farming practices and what they tell us about the possibility for a just transition for all beings. Lastly, Viva! Farming’s work outreaching the farming community will demonstrate that by taking an honest and compassionate approach to building personal relationships, we can turn animal farmers into allies to create a kinder, fairer world for all.
