Policy change starts with making our voices heard. Young people will not only shape the future, but we will shape the present through our actions! We are leaders today, and must act on the greatest threat of our time: climate change.

We are on the edge of a climate catastrophe, yet we continue to conduct business as usual, afraid to make often radical but necessary decisions and ignore the science that ruthlessly shows us the reality in which we all find ourselves.
We can no longer ignore the effects of animal agriculture and fossil fuels on our planet. We must change the way we treat nature, and we must do it now. I believe the most powerful thing we can do as consumers, is not consume certain things. We can eat plants, plant trees and endorse the Plant Based Treaty to support a future where we can all thrive.

Nilang Gor is a Senior Scientist in the field of genetic disorders and holds M.S. in Cellular and Molecular Biology. Nilang also founded Cultivate Empathy for All, an organization which promotes empathy as a tool to address global challenges. As a systems thinker, he believes that we live in a highly interconnected ecosystem, where our well-being is interdependent on fellow humans, non-human animals, and the environment. He mobilizes community members to educate their city lawmakers on the negative impacts of animal-based food systems on various aspects of our society and environment, and promote local, sustainable policies and programs.
I endorse Plant-based Treaty because it is rooted in the scientific approach of “One Health”- the health of people is interconnected with the health of animals and our shared environment. My vision is to mobilize cities to put pressure on national governments for negotiating an International Plant-based Treaty.
