Peter Singer


Event Navigation

Peter Singer may be the planet’s most influential living philosopher. Sometimes controversial—but always practical—ethicist Peter continues to stir public debate and confront the big issues of our time. Peter features in this year’s Festival Great Debate unearthing the hidden impacts of animal agriculture and the climate emergency.

A staggering 70% of agricultural emissions come directly from livestock, and result in 37% of total worldwide human-caused methane emissions. Have we got the stomach to swallow this striking reality? How can we address these unpalatable impacts of animal agriculture, and feed the world?

Join SLF for one of the biggest Great Debates yet!
