The Big One Climate Protest: leaving no one behind

Future Food Movement attended The Big One climate protest last Friday. The team felt it was vital that we show up to The Big One to unite with people from across a wide range of businesses, organisations and communities.  It was a peaceful and unified gathering by Extinction Rebellion (XR), in their new approach to driving change in a more inclusive and accessible way, focussed on engagement rather than disruption. The Big One built collective power to create a megaphone message to the Government, businesses and the world that the clock is ticking and we need to act now before it’s too late. The climate crisis is everyone’s fight; we need businesses, individuals, communities, activists, families and the media, to showcase the strength in numbers and make necessary changes to combat this crisis. 

A Positive and Energetic get-together

The Big One was a positive and energetic get-together from people of all ages, groups and backgrounds; everyone was united with one same cause: to fight the climate crisis, showing the true power people can have to take action. Everyone was welcome and could do their bit to take climate action.

united on climate

We weren’t the only organisation to join, we joined a brilliant collection of NGOs (such as Earth Day and Fairtrade), businesses (such as Patagonia), media (such as Financial Times and Edie) and networks (such as Business Declares and NHS Workers Say No).

we are calling for a food system revolution

Future Food Movement, powered by Veris Strategies, is calling for a food system revolution. This #EarthDay marks ~7 years left to avert the worse consequences of the climate crisis and enact bold, transformational change to avoid raising global temperature above 1.5ºC; a point of no return that scientists warn us will make the worst climate impacts inevitable.

Our world is on fire and the food system poses one of the biggest threats.

What are we looking for?
  • To reconnect our food system to nature through nature positive food production
  • Mandatory climate upskilling across food industry Boards
  • Active engagement in climate action across the whole UK food sector
