The Vegan Organic Network (VON) are going to COP26 the international conference on Climate Change in Glasgow from 1st-12th November, with our Pedal Powered Vegan Cargo trike which is installed with a Giant 43 inch TV.
The Giant Vegan TV will be broadcasting information about why going vegan is good for the climate, animals, people and planet.
We will have videos from veganic farms, scientists, musicians, organisations and videos from our Save our Wildlife Short Video Competition which is open for entries until 31st October.
Animal Agriculture is not on the COP26 agenda!
The COP26 event is a global united Nations summit about climate change and how countries are planning to solve it. Over 200 countries will be taking part!
Animal agriculture is the first or second largest global emitter of CO2, depending on whose stats you are looking at. With more than 88 billion animals raised and slaughtered for food each year, intensive livestock farming is responsible for between 15% and 87 % of the world’s human-made greenhouse gas emissions.
The 15% estimate research was sponsored by the meat and dairy industry and the 87% estimate is by Sailesh Rao of Climate Healers.
Both these estimates exceed emission levels from global transport combined. And yet, inexplicably, animal agriculture is not on the COP26 agenda as a priority in discussions on the mitigation of global warming.
Here’s what we’re doing about it
We are going to COP26 and collaborating with other vegan groups and individuals to show that by going vegan and adopting veganic farming we can start to solve the crisis humans have created, that is: global warming, loss of wildlife and biodiversity, soil degradation, ocean and river dead zones.
When people move to a vegan/plant-based diet, millions of acres of land can be rewilded and when we adopt veganic farming methods, we will have clean safe food, which is good for humans, animals and the environment.
