ONE Act a Week: Think critically about our ‘bold global plan’

Action: 38. Time: 25 minutes. Level of difficulty: Moderate.


In our new petition to fight global hunger, we ask our ONE members to urge the G8 to “implement a bold global plan to ensure 50 million people escape poverty through agriculture.” The line sounds vague, but it’s not — the “bold global plan” we’re referring to is outlined in detail in our report, “Food. Farming. Future: Breaking the Cycle of Malnutrition and Poverty.

So, your job for this week’s ONE Act is to read the report and learn about our “bold global plan” for the G8. Then, share something about the report in the comments section below — doing so will make you eligible to win one of our cool green Thrive aprons used at our launch events in Berlin, London, Washington, D.C., and Paris earlier this week.


Our new Thrive aprons

What to share? Anything. It could be your thoughts about the report, an interesting fact you learned, an idea or even a question. The exercise aims to help you think critically about our ask to the G8 and their impact on sustainable agriculture and food security. Don’t forget to leave it in the comments section below.

We’ll choose one of you at random to win a green Thrive apron next Friday at 3 p.m.
