Ghent, in Belgium, will go vegetarian, city-wide, one day a week to acknowledge and act on the connection between the production of animals for meat, dairy and eggs and global warming. City officials and politicians will be the first to go meatless, followed in coming months by students in the city’s schools. “Veggie street maps” are being helpfully provided by the city, too, to support the “Veggiedag” initiative. In addition to reducing Ghent’s greenhouse gas emissions from consuming animal products, city councillors also hope to address the increasing girth of many Ghent residents. One can only say, go, Ghent–as well as, go to Ghent, too (but find a responsible way to offset any carbon you emit if you do).
