Safe and Just

The Plant Based Treaty’s Vegan Donut Economics Approach to the Food System

Introducing vegan donut economics
The Safe and Just report shines a light on the urgency of addressing the transgression of planetary boundaries beyond the critical climate crisis, and raising the alarm bell on interrelated tipping points. We are on track for a breakdown of Earth’s systems and societies unless bold action is taken on food systems. The devastating and even apocalyptic impact of animal agriculture on Earth’s planetary boundaries, from land-use changes, ocean dead zones, incessant heat waves and melting ice caps, to scorching forest fires, requires comprehensive solutions for shifting to plant-based diets, addressing food justice, and rewilding the Earth. By embracing the vegan donut economics framework, we utilise an ethical, scientific and socio-economic systems approach to connect the scientific mandate to act with the Plant Based Treaty’s forward-thinking principles, policies, and detailed proposals, focusing on a just transition that includes everyone.

“Our Safe and Just report delivers a big idea with a bold action plan to transition to a plant-based food system with a globally and locally implemented treaty. The Plant Based Treaty sets forth an Earthshot trail for transitioning to a plant-based food system and rewilding the Earth to lead us to a green ‘safe and just’ space. This requires actors at all levels to both respect Earth’s ecological limits while allowing communities to thrive through food security and justice, Indigenous protection, ending live export, financing plant-based food, massive public education campaigns, greener cities, and equitable land distribution.
