Today we are honored to continue our interview with Anita and Nicola who will share their goals and objectives for this powerful new initiative; The Plant Based Treaty. “We've set ourselves goals of 10 million individual endorsers, 10,000 businesses and organizations and 50 cities by 2023, which is when the Global Stocktake of the Paris Agreement happens. The signatures we collect are basically there to show the support for Plant Based Treaty and show the momentum building. We are trying to create this bottom-up pressure to show that individuals, groups, businesses, are all coming together to call for world leaders to implement this global agreement about a transition to a plant-based economy.”

“If we don't act soon, then our window of opportunity is smaller. And think of a societal breakdown, as temperature gets hotter, more people will get sick and die of heat stroke. There will be challenges to the energy system as temperatures go up, Energy systems have trouble operating in higher temperatures. There's the fear of a food system breakdown. Food systems become vulnerable when the temperature is 30 degrees Celsius or higher. You see rivers drying up. There's water shortages. We're going to see increased numbers of climate refugees. The Plant Based Treaty is a way to address this, this decade. I can't overstate the urgency. One way to address climate anxiety is to work on solutions like the Plant Based Treaty. We really need millions of people to come together and to force national governments to address the real issues at the global level.”

In conclusion, Anita emphasizes that a key way people can help is by endorsing the Plant Based Treaty. Their website is designed to allow endorsement at four levels - Individuals, Groups, Businesses, and Cities. The website also offers a host of resources that one can make use of to spread the urgent message and garner more support. “Let's organise a massive global grassroots pressure campaign and get the world to switch to plant-based this decade, preferably in the next few years to avert a climate catastrophe.”
