Diet Change Not Climate Change Campaign

The climate clock is ticking and climate scientists have already sounded the alarm ‘code red’ for humanity. Global temperatures have already spiked by 1.1°C above pre-industrial levels. To limit the temperature rise by 1.5°C to prevent the most catastrophic effects of the climate crisis, we need more ambitious actions. 

The Diet Change Not Climate Change campaign aims to put a shift towards a more plant-based diet on the global climate agenda, more specifically, to get plant-based diets mentioned within the National Determined Contributions (NDCs) of countries which together form the actions that have to be taken under the Paris Agreement. The timeline is a short one – by 2023 a global stock take will take place and by 2025 all countries should submit their updated NDCs. We are deeply involved in the UN processes, most notably the United Nations Climate Change Conference (commonly known as COP) to engage policymakers and delegates to influence the agenda. 

The campaign harmonises various stakeholder groups, from citizens to civil society, corporations and NGOs to governments and aims to create a global platform for strategic collaboration and impactful action. More details can be found in the attached campaign overview. 

You can find out more about this campaign on our website.

Please apply via our regular ProVeg Grant or EVA Grant application here. Deadlines are 1 June and 1 Sept. 11:59pm GMT.

Grants are open to organizations outside USA.
