News Section Icon Published 7/14/2022

A game-changing international conference providing a platform for experts across the globe to share solutions on global food system transformation has been announced by Compassion in World Farming in partnership with IPES-Food, Birdlife International and other partners.

The Extinction or Regeneration conference, to be held in London on 11th and 12th of May 2023, will offer individuals, organisations, companies and other experts the opportunity to present solutions for transforming our global food and farming systems for better human, animal and planetary health.
Hosted as a hybrid meeting – at the QEII Conference Centre in London, and online – this major international conference will include plenary sessions with inspirational speakers, roundtable discussions, networking and facilitated action workshops to catalyse collaboration and change.

Bringing together diverse interests – including environment, public health, food business, food policy, conservation, finance and animal welfare – the programme will enable attendees to explore, share, and build momentum behind existing and new solutions. From lobbying for change in the worlds of global politics and finance to demonstrating efficient and nature-positive solutions… all methods for transformation are on the table.

The event has been organised as an unprecedented opportunity for the disruptors of food-as-usual to share knowledge and insights on how these and other key issues can be tackled.

The event follows the successful Extinction and Livestock Conference which took place in October 2017 in London. This seminal event, organised by Compassion in World Farming in partnership with WWF (UK), Birdlife International, the European Environment Bureau, and other partners, examined how livestock production and its use of finite resources were devastating biodiversity and pushing wildlife to the brink of extinction. It brought together 540 delegates from over 30 countries.

Registration for the event will open in September 2022. More information can be found at: www.extinctionconference.com
