The Plant-Based Universities campaign is a movement in universities across the UK, with students demanding their institution transition to 100% just and sustainable plant-based catering on campus by the 2023-24 academic year.
With international interest from students in The Netherlands and Australia, the campaign is rapidly spreading as groups of students lead the push for their institution to stop the sale of environmentally-destructive food and drink options.
These are the institutions preparing so many for the future, a future they have a responsibility to ensure is there for their students. The climate crisis cannot be averted whilst the world’s top centres of education continue complicity in the emissions and injustice perpetrated by the production of things like meat, fish, and dairy.
Universities are where we get so much climate science from, and as such they have a responsibility to listen to it. With industries like meat, fishing, and dairy producing more greenhouse gas emissions than the entire transport sector, plant-based catering on campus is the only future-proof option.
Animal Rebellion offers training, resources, and support to decentralised groups of dedicated students far and wide. Any students wanting to get involved only need to fill out this interest form and we’ll be in touch!
