Extinction Rebellion to discuss climate change alongside Max La Manna and Amir Kassam
Environmental group Extinction Rebellion will discuss climate change alongside zero-waste vegan chef Max La Manna and university professor Amir Kassam as part of an environment panel taking place at VegFestUK in Brighton, England.
The trio will talk about what we know and don’t know about climate catastrophe, how to avoid it and whether veganism a silver bullet.
Extinction Rebellion came to prominence in 2018 when a number of activists stopped traffic on major bridges across London, protesting the lack of action on climate change.
They will be represented by Roman Paluch-Machnik.
Roman has been working with Extinction Rebellion since July 2018. Since then he has been involved in numerous actions, delivered talks discussing climate and ecological collapse and the need for Civil Disobedience and delivered Non-Violent Direct Action Trainings across the country.
Max La Manna is a zero-waste vegan chef who created his Eating With Max concept to re-connect people with food, and to raise awareness on how we can live more sustainably together each day. He has been featured in numerous publications—most recently NowThis, BuzzFeed and Mashable.
Professor Amir Kassam is Visiting Professor in the School of Agriculture, Policy and Development, University of Reading. He has been widely published on the productivity, economic, environmental and societal benefits of Conservation Agriculture.
The environmental panel takes place in the Radical Veganism room at VegFestUK Brighton.
VegFestUK Brighton takes place on 23rd and 24th March at Brighton Centre, and tickets are available HERE.
