Plant-Based Councils – why councils and other organisations need to lead the way towards sustainable eating
Linda Newbery is a campaigner with Plant-Based Councils (formerly Feed Our Future), asking councils to commit to plant-based catering for their events as a demonstration of their commitment to tackling the climate emergency.

How do campaigners cope with criticism? What can you do to support this campaign and to help ‘normalise’ plant-based eating?
