European Politicians Go Vegan to Fight Climate Change

Political leaders in Denmark take on a 22-day vegan challenge to set an example for citizens worldwide.

A group of Danish parliament members—from both the Alternative and Red-Green Alliance parties—recently pledged to go vegan for 22 days to raise awareness about how animal agriculture is devastating to the environment. “Going vegan for 22 days is not going the save the world in itself,” Red-Green Alliance’s environmental secretary Maria Gjerding said, “but it’s a great opportunity to put focus on Western consumption of animal products and the environmental and animal welfare problems it causes.” Stateside, a group of politicians in San Diego abstained from meat in April as part of the VegWeek campaign launched by animal-rights group Compassion Over Killing to encourage people to ditch animal products.
