Meat is now central to billions of people's daily meals. The environmental, climate, public health, ethical, and human impacts are enormous and remain largely unexplored. 'What's for Dinner?' explores this terrain in fast-globalizing China through the eyes of a retired pig farmer in rural Jiangxi province; a vegan restaurateur in Beijing; a bullish young livestock entrepreneur; and residents of the province known as the 'world's factory' contending with water polluted by wastes from pig factory farms. They personalize the vast trends around them, in a country on the cusp of becoming a world power. Given that every fifth person in the world is Chinese, what the Chinese eat and how China produces its food, affects not only China, but the world, too. (Running time: 28 mins)
Part sociological experiment and part adventure comedy, 'Vegucated' follows three meat and cheese-loving New Yorkers who agree to adopt a vegan diet for six weeks. Lured by tales of weight lost and health regained, they begin to uncover the hidden sides of animal agriculture that make them wonder whether solutions offered in films like Food, Inc. go far enough. This entertaining documentary showcases the rapid and at times comedic evolution of three people who discover they can change the world one bite at a time. (Running time: 77 mins)
Climate Week NYC (September 24th - 30th) is an annual summit bringing together the world's leading businesses and governments and an exciting array of public-facing events, all focused on driving a swift, massive scaling-up of clean technologies to create jobs and boost the economy. This year, Climate Week NYC will unveil a powerful vision for an American Clean Revolution, and demonstrate how it can generate growth, create prosperity, and secure a sustainable future for American families.
Now in its fourth year, Climate Week NYC has become a key moment in the global climate leadership calendar. It brings together The Climate Group, Carbon Disclosure Project, the United Nations Global Compact, the UN Foundation, The City of New York, TckTckTck, the World Bank and an array of international business, government, non-profit and thought-leaders to call for urgent action to tackle the very real threats posed by climate change to American communities.
From the high-profile Climate Week NYC Opening Ceremony, to our ever-growing list of diverse affliate events, we'll all play a pivotal role in driving the Clean Revolution - and a better, smarter and more prosperous future. For all.
