Some good news! A meat-free revolution in the Belgian city of Ghent!
Meat-free revolution to help save the planet - Sydney Morning Herald
The city council says it is the first town in Europe and probably the
Western world to try to make the entire place vegetarian for a day
every week. The Labour Party councillor pushing the scheme, Tom
Balthazar, said: "There's nothing compulsory. We just want to be a
city that promotes sustainable and healthy living."
Every restaurant in the city is to guarantee a vegetarian dish on the
menu, with some going fully vegetarian every Thursday. From September,
the city's schools are to make a meat-free meal the "default" option
every Thursday, although parents can insist on meat for their
children. At least one hospital wants to join in.
