Call for Action

October 1 to October 7 is the International Vegetarian Week. Since 2009, countless organisations, in many countries, are joining this movement to promote a healthier, more humane and environmentally sustainable lifestlye.

You are also invited to get involved!



Why a Vegetarian Week?

With nearly daily reports of severe droughts, floods, storms and wildfires, and climate scientists predicting increasingly warm temperatures, it is urgent to shift the world from its present unsustainable path to avoid a huge catastrophe. Many reports have shown the significant contributions of animal-based diets to global warming, so it is essential to get the urgency of dietary shifts onto the world's agenda.

Everyday is an excellent day to be a healthy and conscious vegetarian, but October 1 to 7 is a nice opportunity to double our efforts and campaign towards a better world:
