Chiara Appendino, the newly elected mayor of Turin, is determined to promote the delights of vegetarian and vegan food, despite the city being the capital of Piedmont, a region famed for its meat-based cuisine.
Presenting her new council’s five-year plan, the 32-year-old mayor from the Eurosceptic, anti-establishment Five Star Movement, said she wanted to reduce the amount of meat eaten by “Torinesi”.“The promotion of vegan and vegetarian diets is a fundamental act in safeguarding the environment, people’s health and the welfare of our animals,” the council’s plan states.
The new administration intends to teach Turin’s schoolchildren about the impact that eating meat has on the environment, from the intensive use of water to the production of greenhouse gases. “Leading medical, nutritional and political experts will help promote a culture of respect in our schools, teaching children how to eat well while protecting the earth and animal rights,” the council said.“
The fact that our choice of what to eat has an impact on the environment is not my opinion, it’s the opinion of the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation,” said Stefania Giannuzzi, the council’s new environment officer, who has been a vegetarian for the past two decades.
