In this age of hunger and accelerating climate and biodiversity emergencies, radical reform of the global food system is urgently needed.

Our Extinction or Regeneration conference – in partnership with IPES-Food, BirdLife International and other partners – will enable experts and stakeholders worldwide to share solutions on global food system transformation to ensure better human, animal and planetary health.

Unprecedented opportunity

This game-changing conference will be held at the QEII Conference Centre, London, UK and online from the 11th to the 12th of May, 2023.

Our Global CEO, Philip Lymbery, who will be a keynote speaker at the conference, says:

To tackle the growing hunger, malnutrition, climate and biodiversity emergencies, radical reform of the global food system is urgently needed.
That’s why we are delighted to partner with IPES-Food, Birdlife International and other influential international organisations to bring you this unprecedented event which will give people all over the world the opportunity to share their solutions to fix our broken food system.

Inspiring transformation

Extinction or Regeneration will include plenary sessions with inspirational speakers, roundtable discussions, networking and facilitated action workshops to catalyst collaboration and change.

The meeting will be a forward-thinking and solutions-focused event. It is designed to bring together a diverse and high-level international audience from interests including environment, public health, food business, agriculture, policy, conservation, finance, and animal welfare.

As leading global thinkers, they will offer actionable insights and evidence-based interventions for the future by examining and debating key themes around food system transformation.

Registration for the event will open in September 2022.

Building on success

Extinction or Regeneration follows the successful 2017 Extinction and Livestock Conference in London which brought together 540 delegates from more than 30 countries. Organised by Compassion and partners including WWF (UK), BirdLife International and the European Environment Bureau, it examined how livestock production devastates biodiversity and pushes wildlife to the brink of extinction.
