New vegan treaty calls for plant-based food system to dramatically decrease global emissions.
As an accompaniment to the Paris Agreement, the Plant Based Treaty, a new grassroots, landmark international campaign, is urging governments around the world to cooperate to truly address the urgent climate crisis by promoting a shift away from animal factories.
Led by activists Dr. Anita Krajnc, Genelle Butler, and Nicola Harris, the treaty emphasizes three core principles: Relinquish, Redirect and Restore. Relinquish calls for the end to the expansion of the animal raising industry and its resultant environmental destruction and deforestation. Redirect encourages an active transition from animal-based food systems to plant-forward diets. Finally, Restore urges the restoration and protection of key ecosystems.
Launched in nearly 100 town and city halls worldwide, the campaign will work towards having 10 million individuals endorse the treaty by 2023, ahead of the Global Stocktake of the Paris Agreement. Dr. Krajnc is a Shining World Compassion Award recipient, and previously received a humble contribution of US$15,000 from Supreme Master Ching Hai toward her animal rights organizations Toronto Pig Save and the Animal Save Movement.
Bravo, Plant Based Treaty advocates and all activists involved, for your heartfelt efforts to eliminate the main driver of climate change, animal factories. May your noble goal be quickly achieved as everyone turns vegan, in the grace of the Providence.
