Can you imagine a vegan future? Or do you think animal consumption is here to stay – that meat is nice, normal, necessary and natural?
Jared Piazza tells us these four Ns of meat justification are difficult to overcome. Matthew Cole and Kate Stewart show how the media circulate these justifications, allowing us to rationalise animal exploitation.
For those who do shun meat, there are social implications, Charlotte De Backer tells us, and Alina Salmen and Kristof Dhont show that these differ according to gender. Matthew Ruby and Tani Khara remind us that veganism is not new, and despite stereotypes, ‘anyone can be vegan’.
Plotting a path to a vegan future will help towards climate goals, and Richard Carmichael has recommendations for low carbon food policy.
Read the full versions of some abridged pieces on our website, where you can also find out how to contribute. What else can you imagine for our future, and what is psychology’s role? Let us know.
