Brighter Green and partners Loyola Marymount University, Mediterranean City Climate Change Consortium (MC-4), ProVeg International, Friends of the Earth, and members of the Food and Climate Alliance will host a strategy session during the Global Climate Action Summit to engage, link, and find ways to collaborate and push forward ambitious climate action in the food, agriculture, and land use sector, by focusing on mitigation and co-benefits from shifting diets (specifically in populations that are over-consuming).

We look to have a fruitful, facilitated discussion, framed by a few short introductory presentations by technical experts and change-makers. The event will be participatory to ensure input from many, instead of a small number of speakers. During this session we’ll dive into difficult questions and seek to develop cross-sectoral strategies (global, national, sub-national, and localthat move forward shifting diets as a climate change mitigation strategy, highlighting the role of meat and other animal-based products, as well as feed. Participation from different disciplines, especially individuals/organizations from the global South, is welcome and encouraged. Event will include an informal reception featuring creative, climate-friendly food.
