Diet to Save Earth
Diet to Save Earth ("DTSE") is a youth-led movement with the vision of educating and mobilising young people the world over to be catalysts in encouraging their families, communities and societies to promote and adopt dietary changes as a powerful, far-reaching climate action which humans, especially those in developed economies, can readily and immediately take for the sake of the health of Earth and ourselves whilst helping to make a contribution to the achievement of many United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 2, 3, 6, 12 and 13 which are interconnected with human demand for food.
As former United States President Obama had quoted an American governor, in his speech delivered at the 2014 United Nations Climate Change Summit: "We are the first generation to feel the effect of climate change and the last generation who can do something about it." The mission of DTSE is to inspire youths to play their part in shouldering humanity’s duty to promptly rescue Earth from irreversible damages by turning the climate change crisis into an opportunity to pursue and implement long-overdue changes in consumer behaviour which has impacts across different facets of systems and industries related to the production, supply and distribution of food and meals.
As an organisation, DTSE connects and works with like-minded individuals and organisations to empower the current generations and beyond to heal Earth one bite and one sip at a time.
DTSE is a member of United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change’s Paris Committee on Capacity-Building and a civil society organisation accredited by the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. DTSE is also an organisational member of prominent international networks such as Civicus, Youth Collective, Global Green, Earth Charter, Community Arts Network, etc.
