Many efforts in the transition to sustainable protein are directed towards scientific and technological issues such as the discovery of new forms of protein and increasing the efficiency of protein production. But what about the impact that this transition will have on society at large and on non-human beings such as animals? In this Webinar, prominent experts from Wageningen University will introduce us to this social perspective on the protein transition that is so crucial to reach sustainability.
