What's the future of our food going to look like?
THE END OF ANIMAL FARMING by Jacy Reese
Jacy Reese is the Research Director and co-founder of Sentience Institute, a nonprofit think tank researching the most effective strategies for expanding humanity’s moral circle. He previously served as Board Chair and as a researcher at Animal Charity Evaluators. His writing has appeared in Vox, Salon, and Quartz, and he has presented his research to academic and nonprofit audiences in fifteen countries.
He applies an analytical lens of “effective altruism,” the burgeoning philosophy of using evidence-based research to maximise one’s positive impact in the world, in order to better understand which strategies can help expand the moral circle now and in the future.
The author of an upcoming book, The End of Animal Farming, Jacy Reese shows how the future of food will be a system in which the tastes of even the most die-hard meat-eater are satisfied by innovative food technologies like cultured meats and plant-based protein. Reese will invite his readers—vegan and non-vegan—to consider one of the most important and transformational social movements of the coming decades.
ANIMAL ALLIES by Rebecca Cappelli
Rebecca will share a brief introduction of Animal Allies and some key initiatives in Singapore to help farm animals. The audience will also learn some inspirational steps anyone can take today to successfully transition their diet and lifestyle choices to lay the foundation for a better future for all.

Animal Allies are part of the Centre for a Responsible Future, which also includes EarthFest and Vegetarian Society (Singapore), with other organisations under development including a Plant Based Business Association.
They inspire people to make more compassionate, healthy and sustainable choices in Singapore.
Organised by: Effective Altruism (EA) Singapore
Effective Altruism Singapore (EA SG) is part of the network of EA chapters globally.
Effective Altruism (EA) is about using evidence and and careful reasoning to figure out how we can improve the world. We ask, "With limited time and money, how can I create the greatest positive impact possible?"
We believe that with the affluence in Singapore, we have a great opportunity to use our resources more effectively to make a positive difference in the world. At EA SG, we are focused on effective giving, high impact careers as well as research.
We engage with donors, students, philanthropists, corporates, and social impact organisations to share ideas and look at ways for how to do good more effectively.
