A FREE webinar aims to inspire Warwickshire residents to reduce their meat consumption or go vegan.
Warwick and Stratford district councils are inviting residents to join a free Veganuary-inspired webinar on Thursday January 20, from 6.30pm to 7.30pm. Also involved is Warwick University’s Vegetarian and Vegan Society which will discuss how meat consumption can be reduced.
In 2019, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) produced a report called ‘Climate Change and Land’, describing plant-based diets as a ‘major opportunity for mitigating and adapting to climate change’. It included a policy recommendation to reduce meat consumption.
The webinar will provide residents with information on how easy it is to reduce meat consumption and consider a diet that is healthy for both themselves and the planet.
Climate change spokesperson Alan Rhead for Warwick District Council said: “Our Carbon Connected webinars are designed to provide residents with the tools they need to make small changes that will make a big difference to their carbon impact. I’d encourage as many people as possible to join us and find out how easy it is to reduce your meat consumption.”
The webinar will take place on Microsoft Teams and can be accessed via a link on the council’s websites.
