1 in 3 People Support Plant-Based Diets – Progress for the Vegan Movement!

Katie Batty and Nick Pendergrast 4 April 2021


Background
share close

This show features animal activist and lawyer Katie Batty on the UN Global Climate Poll and particularly the level of support for a plant-based food system. She argues that half the battle is nearly won when it comes to promoting veganism, with this UN Poll, the biggest ever opinion poll on climate change, finding that 30% of people support the promotion of plant-based diets. This, along with other studies cited below, such as a survey that found 47% of Americans support a ban on slaughterhouses, show significant progress for the vegan movement. However, ongoing barriers to individual veganism remain, such as perceptions around the difficulty, inconvenience and lack of social acceptance of veganism (see the Conversation article by Chris Bryant linked to below for more on these issues).   Links to the articles discussed on the show: 30% of people support the promotion of plant-based diets: https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2021/jan/27/un-global-climate-poll-peoples-voice-is-clear-they-want-action 47% of Americans support a ban on slaughterhouses: https://www.livekindly.co/half-americans-ban-slaughterhouses/ Article by Chris Bryant on attitudes towards veganism: https://theconversation.com/what-meat-eaters-really-think-about-veganism-new-research-129583  Music Played: Regina Spektor ‘You’ve Got Time’: https://www.reginaspektor.com/ Propagandhi ‘Lower Order (A Good Laugh)’: https://propagandhi.bandcamp.com/ Stella Donnelly ‘Old Man’: https://stelladonnelly.bandcamp.com/

A weekly show hosted by Melbourne-based animal advocates, presenting local and international interviews, presentations, and music from this vibrant social justice movement.
