In July 2020, Animal People attended the annual United Nations High Level Political Forum as a member of the Animal Issues Thematic Cluster. As part of this event, Animal People Executive Director Wolf Gordon Clifton conducted a series of interviews with experts on various aspects of animal protection and sustainability. We will be releasing recordings of those interviews here on Animal People Forum.
In the video below, Dr. Sandhya Sriram, co-founder and CEO of Shiok Meats, speaks with Wolf Gordon Clifton about cultivated or cell-based meat. They discuss the advantages of cultivated meat, whether it can be considered vegan, and whether it is likely to succeed on an industrial scale.
