46 days to start a global food revolution


Today we are calling on you to join a global food revolution. In just 46 days, decision makers are coming together for a food summit in London ahead of the G8 meeting in Northern Ireland.  This is the biggest opportunity in a decade to get some serious action taken on nutrition, an issue that has been neglected for too long.

A tiny percentage of the money that the world spends on helping the poorest people improve their lives goes towards better nutrition – less than 0.3%.  Which seems incredible when 40% of children in Africa are so malnourished that they will never fully thrive and reach their full physical and mental potential.

We all know what it’s like to have dreams, imagine if something as simple as adequate nutrition meant you never quite made them a reality.  Tragically for 2.4million of those children every year, malnutrition also claims their lives.

So why are we not doing more to make nutrition a priority? Part of the problem is that the issue is so broad that it becomes everyone’s job and no-ones – intersecting with health, agriculture, social protection and emergency response programmes.  But political will to invest in nutrition is also lacking, and that’s where you can really help.

With the right action, we know that world leaders can lift 25 million children out of malnutrition by 2016, so they can go on and reach their full potential.  Here’s the plan:

 

Don’t be fooled by the notepad, our policy experts have been working hard to make sure we’re campaigning for the changes that will have the most impact, and will be lobbying decision makers relentlessly about the complicated small print.   But having hundreds of thousands of ONE members standing firm behind them will make a huge difference and send a message to leaders that they can’t ignore nutrition any longer.

We need global action urgently, which is why we’ve joined forces with Jamie Oliver to show that better nutrition is the key to both obesity and malnutrition.  Together we’re starting a Global Food Revolution.

Sign the Global Food Revolution petition now, then spread the word. We’ve got just 46 days to make it happen.
