United Nations Summit Calls for End to ‘War On Nature’ - I’ll never forget seeing empty supermarket shelves during the early days of Covid, with people panic buying and scrabbling for essential supplies. Months on and my local superstore still goes for weeks without having frozen veg available. And now shortages of seasonal labour, delivery drivers, petrol and gas have raised political questions and sparked media headlines about the possibility of ‘Christmas being cancelled’....27 September, 2021
We all need to seize the opportunity of this year’s UN Food Systems Summit to move towards a global agreement to end factory farming. To reset our food system. To regenerative, restorative farming, working with nature, not against her.
To that end, I am deeply proud and honoured to have been appointed a ‘Champion’ of the Food Systems Champions Network and that I will represent animal welfare organisations in Europe and beyond, as a Food Systems Champion for the 2021 UN Food Systems Summit.
It has never been so important for humanity, for animals and for all life on Earth to manage our food systems in a genuinely sustainable way and I hope everyone around the world will join me in engaging with the UN Food Systems Summit to encourage the systemic change so urgently needed in our food system. To move away from inherently cruel and nature-destroying forms of food production to ones that truly respect animals as sentient beings.
