Prof Dora Marinova – Flexitarianism and other alternatives to meat-eating

Проф. Дора Маринова: флекситарна или планетарна диета?

Is the ever increasing red meat consumption a problem requiring immediate attention?

Dora is Professor of Sustainability at the Curtin University Sustainability Policy (CUSP) Institute and was CUSP Director from 2015 to 2018 and Deputy Director from 2007 to 2014. She has more than 320 refereed publications and has completed 57 PhD students who now work in academia, industry and government.

She has published in prestigious journals, including Scientometrics, Journal of Cleaner Production, Journal of Econometrics and Nanotechnology.

Dora Marinova says the easiest and quickest action we can take with the biggest benefit for our health and the environment is to reduce our consumption of meat. The environmental impacts of people eating meat form a long list.

Dora Marinova illustrates the impact with a simple statistic. She says the amount of land occupied by our buildings in cities and towns is 1% of available land. And the amount of available land used for livestock and their food is 27%. In other words, people’s preference to eat meat has radically altered the planet from the loss of natural environments and the biodiversity that relied on these lands.

The handbook by Prof Dora Marinova and Dr Diana Bogueva - "Social Marketing and its Influence on Animal Origin Food Products" - was a finalist in 2019 International Book Awards in the category Marketing and Advertising.
