The Right Climate for a Saner Diet: Helping the Planet with each Meal

Sustainability Series

Paul Shapiro

  • Vice President of Farm Animal Protection, The Humane Society of the US

Paul Shapiro is at the forefront of successful legislative and corporate campaigns to improve the plight of farm animals. Paul is a nationally recognized authority on farm animal welfare and animal advocacy, working with lawmakers and major food retailers alike to implement reforms. He has also published dozens of articles about animal welfare in publications ranging from daily newspapers to academic journals.

Although prospects for climate-change policy emanating from Washington, DC are dim, Shapiro will shine the light on actions we can each take for the planet and animals -- every time we sit down to eat. He argues that, whether to protect the planet, prevent animal abuse, or improve our health, our food choices have enormous power.

A collection of Paul's favorite vegan cookbooks will be available for sale.

Vegan Desserts from Dancing Chef Catering will be served.
