Climate friendly / plant based food in schools

We the undersigned petition Brighton & Hove Council to implement a carefully managed transition to at least 2 plant-based days in all state-run schools as soon as is practically possible. We also request that all council run events be plant based, (post pandemic) plus any other council run establishments (e.g. day centres etc ) in order to reduce food emissions.

Food production alone is set to push Earth past 1.5°C of warming according to an Oxford University meta analysis in 2018. “If we don’t change what we do with food, we would miss the 1.5°C target within 30 to 45 years,” says Professor Michael Clark. He adds, “The most effective one seems to be transitioning to a plant-based diet”. He adds:
“Animal agriculture and fishing industries are leading causes of deforestation, ocean dead zones, water pollution, biodiversity loss, and species extinction. Not only that, intensive animal farming poses has a significant threat for the development of new pandemics, and for furthered antibacterial resistance to emerge.”
