The webinar, which starts at 6.30pm, will involve an experienced panel providing answers to questions such as can we get all the nutrients we need without eating animals and is a plant-based diet the most sustainable and environmentally friendly?

Audience members are also being offered 20 per cent off vegan food at Stem&Glory, as well as a chance to watch The Game Changers, a film about meat, protein and strength with a surprising message (subject to availability).

Speakers at the event include Dr Giles Yeo, author of Gene Eating and presenter of BBC2’s Trust Me I'm a Doctor, Louise Palmer-Masterton, founder of Stem & Glory plant-based restaurants, David Goldman, sports nutritionist, exercise physiologist and chief science advisor for The Game Changers, and John Pawsey, organic farmer and former Chair of the NFU Organic Forum.

This is an #AnnualFoodAgenda event, organised by the University of Cambridge, Department of Plant Sciences, powered by EIT Food and supported by the EIT, a body of the European Union.
