The positive impact of Meatless Monday is high on the menu at the eighth annual World Health Summit in Berlin, Germany. From October 9th – 11th, more than 250 international leaders from over 80 countries will gather to discuss the latest strategic developments in healthcare.

To demonstrate their support of Meatless Monday, the summit participants will be served a meat-free lunch. This meal pairs perfectly with the summit’s session on “Planetary Health,” which explores the long-term health implications of environmental changes on food and agriculture.

We’re heartened to see our efforts recognized on a global stage and we’re delighted to share this news with you.

Meatless Monday was started in 2003. Today, we’re active in 44 countries and in over 20 languages. Eating meat-free meals just one day a week not only benefits the environment, but also helps reduce the risk of chronic preventable disease.

Thank you for your help. Together, we’ll do a world of good.
