At Global Issues Network Conferences around the world, one meal at each conference is a vegetarian meal to demonstrate solidarity with those who, for cultural or religious reasons, are vegetarians. It is also a way to recognize and consider the environmental impact of meat production, particularly in factory farms. Another reason for our meal is to show solidarity with the world’s poor. In keeping with this tradition, the conference’s only meal will be a vegetarian meal.
