For the Environment

We are in the midst of unprecedented destruction of our environment. With the current “normal” way of living, we humans are upsetting our vitally important shelter, the Earth’s atmosphere, and are destroying the diversity of living beings on our unique blue planet. This now normalised use of animals for human purposes is at the heart of the two biggest challenges for our future: the climate crisis and the biodiversity crisis. The scientific findings are alarming. If you wish to study them in detail, here are two introductory links: Biodiversity and climate crisis.

For our Climate

Researchers have examined 100 measures globally in terms of their climate effectiveness and have shown how we can solve the climate crisis (see or the report about this on watson ). It is interesting to note that two of the five most effective measures are related to the use of animals today. The reduction of food waste and a “plant-rich diet” are the third and fourth most important measures for reducing emissions worldwide.

And according to Drawdown, from an individual’s perspective, a plant-based diet is the most effective measure for reducing emissions. Standing up for animal rights therefore also means standing up for an intact environment for all.

In no other area in everyday life can we have such an impact on our future.

The entire category of nutrition is responsible for about one third of our negative environmental impact. In no other area can our daily decisions have more impact than with the conversion to a plant-based, organic and regional diet. That is why it is so important that we work together to change the system, i.e. to change the political rules.

The materialisation of animal rights, combined with the associated conversion to plant-based agriculture, would not only reduce the direct greenhouse gas emissions of animals, but also the emissions resulting from land conversion and deforestation, as well as from the cultivation, transportation and processing of animal feed. For every calorie of animal products, about 10 plant calories have to be produced, processed, transported and fed. With plant-based agriculture, the reduced pressure on agricultural land worldwide would mean that there is more scope for climate-positive practices such as reforestation, the renaturation of bogs and humus enrichment using biochar.

The Animal Rights March on August 17, 2019 in Zurich is also a March for solving the climate and biodiversity crisis. Join us and bring as many people as you can with!

It’s in our Hands

In today’s world there is no denying that our way of living destroys our own livelihood and, above all, that of our children (!). But little change has happened to date. Many people simply continue as before, because their conditioned habits are familiar and often deeply imprinted.

However, there are also a lot of people who don’t believe in “the norm” anymore! The climate strikes and demonstrations have made it clear: a movement of committed people full of compassion and zest for action is emerging. These people are questioning the destructive yet normalised practices and are thus creating more space for love and meaning in life.

That there is another way is one of the most important messages of the Animal Rights March on August 17, 2019 in Zurich. Our institutionalized treatment of fellow creatures is the leading cause of the current environmental destruction, the ethics crisis and the rise in health problems. With the Animal Rights March, we are demanding a change in these destructive patterns and making space again for more love towards people and animals.

For the Animals

For the Animals

If we set aside the environment, climate, our health and resource use, we come across the individuals who are directly and immediately affected by our diet. The animals, whose integrity and lives are directly affected by our daily and irrational decisions on whether we declare them as friends or as goods.

For our Health

For our Health

There are many misconceptions about vegan nutrition despite the fact that a balanced, wholesome plant diet is very healthy. A wholesome vegetable diet is naturally low in calories and contains few saturated fats; additional advantages are a high fibre content, antioxidants and phytochemicals.
