In 2019 the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) produced a report, Climate Change and Land, describing plant-based diets as a major opportunity for mitigating and adapting to climate change and included a policy recommendation to reduce meat consumption.

The webinar will provide residents with information on how easy it is to reduce meat consumption and consider a diet that is healthy for both yourself and the planet.

Councillor Alan Rhead, cabinet member for climate change at Warwick District Council, said: “Our Carbon Connected webinars are designed to provide residents with the tools they need to make small changes that will make a big difference to their carbon impact.

"I’d encourage as many people as possible to join us and find out how easy it is to reduce your meat consumption.”

The webinar can be accessed via Microsoft Teams through a link available on both Stratford and Warwick District Council’s websites – www.warwickdc.gov.uk/carbonconnected or www.stratford.gov.uk/carbonconnected
