If you only do one thing today

If you only do one thing today

The countdown to COP26 has begun. Let’s make food part of the solution.

With the effects of Climate Change all around us, from record fires, floods, and heatwaves (new daily records barely even seem news), and big government conferences seeming far from most peoples lives, it can seem hard to know how to make a meaningful difference.

Slow Food in the UK with Slow Food International has created the Slow Food Climate Declaration, and today we are asking you to sign it. 

Launched at the twenty-four hour Slow Food Climate Action Conference which was watched by 8000 people, and more than 40,000 more on social media catch-up,  it calls for a just food system, one which puts food as a solution to the climate crisis, and not the cause.

We will present the global signatories to the UK Govt who hold the presidency of COP26 in November, so this is a way that your voice can be directly heard.

Let them know you care.

Please sign today.

    We need to grow more plants that can give us plant saturate fat (in the UK and the US they call this ‘Sedge’ – eg Sedge McDonald’s and the BBC Sedge Report on Radio 4.

    The environment needs more sat fat – we need more interest in things like steak fries or buttered roast potatoes. Everything is cooked in blood thinners – how does that affect the environment? Even the rats have diabetes now.

    We need smaller portions of meat and fish offered to us in the supermarket. There are a lot of single people who are not catered for. The portions of meat and fish sold in the supermarket are way too big.

    We need to have smaller portion of fish sold in the Fish and Chip shops.
