The Sault Climate Hub hosts a presentation at 7:30 pm by Emma Meadows, climate action staff scientist at Science North, entitled Food for a Sustainable Future: Environmental Benefits of Plant-Based Eating.

One of the most “impactful and effective” ways for individuals to take action on climate change is by switching to a plant-based diet, says a Sault Climate Hub release.

Food for a Sustainable Future outlines the implications of plant-based eating in terms of climate change, and the benefits it can have for both individuals and the environment. Meadows will explain why she made the choice to cut out meat from her diet, and why she encourages others to also reduce meat consumption and incorporate more plant-based meals into their lives.

Meadows, also vice-chair of Science North’s Green Team, holds a master’s degree in environmental science with a specialization in climate change impacts and adaptation from the University of Toronto.

“Emma strives to inspire audiences across Canada, particularly youth, to take action on climate change and incorporate sustainable practices into everyday life,” says The Sault Climate Hub. “She is a strong believer that individual choices can make a difference when it comes to climate solutions.”

Prior to the main webinar, Meadows and youth participants will present a brief summary of the Science North Youth Climate Action Summit recently held in Sault Ste. Marie. The summit was a two-day interactive conference for high school students to learn, be inspired and take action on climate change.
