We build first Coalition Future Food 4 Climate
We build first Coalition Future Food 4 Climate

Future Food 4 Climate is a coalition of civil society, informal groups, foundations, associations, collectives that engage in advocacy and watchdog work for food system transition.

We endorse Plant Based Treaty
We endorse Plant Based Treaty

Plant Based Treaty is designed to put food systems at the forefront of combating the climate crisis. PBT aims to halt the widespread degradation of critical ecosystems caused by animal agriculture and to promote a shift to sustainable plant-based diets.

Plant Based School

A sense of responsibility for, solidarity with and thinking about future generations must be written into the DNA of every school. When we say ‘Plant Based School’, we think about the right to plant-based meals, about healthy and climate and environmentally safe food, about ending the culture of food waste. We need good education about climate, environment and animal rights. Plant Based School is also about its environment – the community, community organisations, local business and local government. Everyone needs to move to the green side of power!


Green Advocacy Academy

Green Advocacy Academy is a unique educational project that engages and prepares young people to advocate for climate and food system transition action. 

We teach, we mobilise by showing that it is time for a critical mass of individuals, initiatives, organisations that will change the system through advocacy. We show how the food system and modern agriculture are destroying the climate, biodiversity, human life and health and animal rights. Experts from around the world, activists, policy advisors, scientists, NGO leaders support the Green Advocacy Academy so that GAA participants receive a dose of food system transition knowledge, advocacy skills and effective action. We know that green advocacy skills will provide a youth voice in the public debate.


European Vegan Summit

The very first event of its kind in Europe. Place where activists, politicians, business people and academics meet on one stage. 

We believe it is high time to start connecting the dots between the world of human rights, environmental rights and animal rights. It is impossible to create a modern nation and develop competitive economies without changing the food system. Only an economy without animal exploitation can provide the answer to the challenges brought by climate catastrophe.

Mission and goals

The Foundation’s mission is to change and build the world in respect for the people, animals and climate. Contemporary agriculture has ceased to be the one that we used to know. It has become an industry, which does affect the quality of life and health of the people, contributes to climatic changes and objectification of animals. What happens is concentration of food production, the scale industrial agriculture is growing and the number of small, family farms is declining.

Care about health and high product quality has been replaced by the profit and loss account, and the fight for as low production costs as possible. Industrial agriculture changes the climate, makes people lose the right to live in a clean environment. After all, the right to live in a clean, safe, friendly environment, is a human right. What environment we are living in, what air we are breathing, how safe is the water we use – all this determines the quality of our lives. We have the right to be informed about what we eat, which products we use. We have the right to be informed about whether the available products are healthy and safe for us and our loved ones. We have the right to make informed choices!

In a store, restaurant, hotel, our rights – the right to information, to choose services and products – must be heard and respected. We have the right to this, because we want to live a healthy and safe life, because we want to protect our loved ones.

The law must follow our needs, social changes, must effectively protect us. We believe that business may be and often is socially responsible, that there are entrepreneurs who care for human rights, protect the natural environment, those who are not indifferent to the fate of animals.

The obligation of the state is to support business that operates responsibly and hold those who harm our health and the natural environment accountable. Can we expect this from the state?

Yes! For this reason, we have created Green REV Institute. Because we want everyone to be able to live in a safe place, be able to have a healthy and safe diet.

Foundation's programs

The polluter must pay!
Monitoring and assessment of the European Commission's actions and the EU legislative process from the point of view of goals of the Paris Agreement, EU's Green Deal and From Farm to Fork strategies, and the treaty-based principle "the polluter pays" – so as to ensure that the law protects consumers, the environment, rural inhabitants as well as animal rights.
Active towards the farms
Support for local communities in enforcing their right to live in a clean environment, free from smell nuisance, with access to healthy water, without the risk of loss of value of their real estate as a result of establishing and operations of industrial farms. Because what environment we are living in determines the quality of our life.
Safe food
Gathering and analysis information about hazards related to marketed products. Publication of reports, showing opportunities and threats, strengths and weaknesses of the European policy in the food safety area and sales of other products. Preparation of de lege ferenda applications and specific solutions, because we always want to act practically.
We have the right to information
Monitoring of the legislative process and popularization of the idea of the right to information about products, the right to safe food and full access to goods and services. Our goal is to change the Regulation of the EP and the Council on transfer to consumers of the information about food in order to ensure that it supports consumers, and not manufacturers, because what matters here is safety.
Start acting!
Expert's support for politicians, public administration, non-governmental organizations in the field of the climate policy, human rights, animal rights from the point of view of the adverse impact of industrial agriculture and industrial animal husbandry on the natural environment, quality of life of people and well-being/rights of animals.
Women and climate
Strengthening the role of women as agents of change in the activities for climate. Creating programs and projects for women as decision makers. Cooperation with women's organizations in building the competencies of women, as a group particularly affected by the climate crisis. Studies and monitoring of changes caused by the climate crisis, subject to the situation and needs of women. Running programs and studies constituting the basis for data driven actions for women.

Future Food 4 Climate


Future Food 4 Climate is a coalition of civil society, informal groups, foundations, associations, collectives that engage in advocacy and watchdog work for food system transition.

We include organizations, groups, and experts whose voices are not being heard enough in the climate debate. Together we face the climate crisis, the decline of biodiversity, the destruction of oceans and seas, the threat to food security, and the exploitation of animals by the animal industry. The current model of food production and agriculture is a key driver of the climate crisis, exacerbates social inequalities, and involves enormous suffering. That’s why FF4C is taking action, targeting decision makers, politicians, the European Commission, the European Parliament, national MPs. We need to fix the world through systemic action. The European Green Deal Going Local is a postulate that we want to implement in all our actions through cooperation, broad participation, dialogue and collaboration with organizations from all over Poland for a green, just transition of the food system.

Business as usual is not an option


In a time of climate catastrophe, we need a global agreement for the transition of the food system.

A transition that is just, ethical and good for the climate, animals and people. Animal agriculture contributes to climate catastrophe, biodiversity loss, and pollution of the seas and oceans. That is why policymakers and decision makers should act today for a plant-based, climate-responsible transformation of the food system. The demands of the Plant Based Treaty, the first treaty for a complete transition of the global food system can be endorse at: www.plantbasedtreaty.org
