Kate along with Tayshan Hayden-Smith, former professional footballer turned guerrilla gardener, Megan McCubbin, conservationist and wildlife presenter on BBC2’s Springwatch, and Paul Whitehouse, actor, writer and comedian, talk to the Chair of the National Trust, René Olivieri, about how we rediscover the power of connection with nature.

Hay Festival – Meadow Stage

31st May - 5:30 pm

Kate chats with food production experts, Philip Lymbery and Ed Winters. Could cultivated meat from stem-cells grown in a bioreactor beat climate change, providing real meat but without the slaughter? Cultivated Meat to Secure Our Future: Hope for Animals, Food Security, and the Environment, co-edited by Philip Lymbery, argues that it could be a game-changer in reducing animal suffering and helping solve the growing crisis of climate change, biodiversity loss, and the rise of ill-health. Ed Winters demonstrates How to Argue With a Meat Eater (and Win Every Time), explaining the principles of veganism as a way to create a more ethical, kind and sustainable world, and breaking down every argument used against it.
