"Compassion involves not causing unnecessary suffering to others, and a simple logical conclusion is that we should ensure our food does not come from tortured animals. I don’t think anyone would disagree with that...So, plant-based eating is unquestionably the most compassionate, and also the healthiest and most environmentally friendly option. It’s not about winning a prize for purity, but putting our actions in line with our values."

Indra Adnan from The Alternative UK is first sofa session guest on Tuesday at 20:00. We invite your questions for her either in advance or on the night. The Alternative UK are doing vital and pioneering work on reimagining politics in the UK in its its widest sense. They propose six core values - constant indicators that are visible in our daily political work – in the way we think, speak and act. From debate, to political initiatives and to the way we campaign.

The talk by Campfire member @Jonathan Leighton (Jonathan-Leighton)@ at July's Campfire Conversation in Chesham was one of the most memorable talks of this summer's Campfire events series. His mantra  “promoting universal compassion and the alleviation of suffering as society’s core value” certainly resonates with the times. He joins us on the sofa at 20:00 on Tuesday 12th September
