Ethical food: what it is and why it matters – Friday May 3
In this talk, Peter Singer will explore how the food choices we make have consequences for animals, for humans, and for the climate of our planet; and what we ought to be eating, and not eating, and why, followed by a lively Q&A session.
Peter Singer is an Australian moral philosopher. He is currently the Ira W. DeCamp Professor of Bioethics at Princeton University, and a Laureate Professor at the Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics at the University of Melbourne.
