We have a wide range of supporters

George Monbiot

Author and environmental activist

“If we are to have a future on this planet, then we must end our reliance on animal products. That is why I support the aims of Food4Thought and wish them well as they promote plant-based provision across Britain’s universities.”

Dale Vince

Founder of Ecotricity

“Probably the biggest and easiest thing any of us can do to fight the climate crisis is to stop eating animals. The starting place for that is often education, making people aware of the issues and their own ability to act. With one in 30 people in the UK studying at university it makes sense for these institutions to take a lead on that and help the drive towards a more sustainable future. I fully support the aims of the Food4Thought campaign.”

Chris Bryant

Doctoral Researcher at the Universities of Bath and Bristol

“As forward-thinking and enlightened institutions, universities should lead the transition away from animal farming.”

Jasmijn De Boo

Vice-President of ProVeg

“Universities have a crucial part to play in creating a more equitable and sustainable future for us all, and they can do that quite simply—by transitioning to plant-based provision. I welcome Food4Thought’s campaign and wish them luck as they encourage and support institutions to make this vital change.”

Andrew Knight

Professor of Animal Welfare and Ethics at the University of Winchester

“Replacing livestock products with alternatives is crucial for tackling climate change, and will have far more rapid effects on greenhouse gas emissions and their atmospheric concentrations than actions to replace fossil fuels with renewable energy sources. Institutions have a key role to play here, and I welcome Food4Thought’s campaign to drive the transition to sustainable, plant-based universities.”
