Knowledge for better food systems


New blog post: Has veganism become a dirty word?

In this blog post, the FCRN's founder Tara Garnett examines why the word "veganism" has become a difficult, uncomfortable or dirty word to some environmentalists. She traces how perceptions of veganism have changed over the past couple of decades, noting that veganism's recent surge in popularity has given rise to a backlash whereby veganism is seen (by some) to be linked to intensive arable monocultures, an industrialised food system and alienation from nature.

The Food Climate Research Network (FCRN) conducts, synthesises, and communicates research on food sustainability.

We inform and connect stakeholders with a common interest in building sustainable food systems.
