Global participation encouraged with the Dublin Declaration available in English, French, Spanish and Portuguese
The Dublin Declaration, previously written in English, has now been expanded to an additional 3 languages namely French, Spanish and Portuguese. This is after the incredible response received from scientists and policy makers across the world who endorse the Dublin Declaration and wish to share it among their colleagues and peers. Since the declaration is gaining more traction across countries, more languages will be added in the near future.
Signatures approach the 1000 mark with less than 300 signatures to go
We are thrilled to announce the success of The Dublin Declaration for scientists. As of today, we crossed the 700 mark. In addition to the participation received, we are receiving substantial positive encouragement by decision makers in policy and business behind the scenes. Today we have 716 signatures and counting.
Being near the 1000 mark, with less than 300 signatures to go, we would greatly appreciate if you could share the Dublin Declaration with your colleagues in science who can commit to signing, and sign yourself if you have not done so yet. Thank you for support in signing The Dublin Declaration for Scientist.
Watch now: The International Summit on the Societal Role of Meat
Text: Meat and livestock contribute to personal health and well-being, maintain ecological balances and secure socioeconomic livelihoods. The International Summit on The Societal Role of Meat – What the SCIENCE Says, highlighted and summarised all the different ways in which meat is relevant in modern society. The Summit took place in Dublin, Ireland on October 19th & 20th 2022, and was hosted by Teagasc, the Irish Agriculture and Food Development Authority. Meat production and meat consumption are frequent subjects of societal debate, and for good reason. As a pivotal source of nourishment, and playing a large role in ecological and economic systems, meat production must continuously evolve with the best technologies available in order to maximize its benefits and minimize undesirable impacts. Given the importance and scale of meat production, the respective agricultural, industrial, governmental and educational actors need to continuously strive to earn their societal license to operate.
It is critical to clearly understand what the objective scientific evidence is saying. The Summit brought together a group of globally leading scientists from across relevant disciplines to present and achieve a comprehensive synopsis of the scientific insights on the role of meat in society.
