Over 60 scientists sign letter calling for meat and dairy to be reduced in schools and hospitals
Scientists from across the world have signed a letter calling for the amount of meat and dairy in schools to be reduced.
Over 60 scientists signed the letter saying it is an effective way to tackle climate change.
They are also calling for a reduction in meat and dairy served in hospitals.
Professor Pete Smith from the University of Aberdeen is an author of reports by the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
He is one of the people behind the letter.
“Eating less meat and dairy in our growing cities is a way to address the climate emergency.
“Cities can play a crucial role in helping citizens to reduce their consumption of livestock products, and to enable the changes necessary to meet ambitious climate change targets.”
