This #FoodRevolutionDay +Jamie Oliver
is embarking on perhaps his most ambitious campaign ever - to make practical food education compulsory in schools across the world. Jamie says:
"I urgently need your help to make a real difference. We’re currently facing a global obesity epidemic, with 42 million children under the age of five either overweight or obese across the world. The bottom line is the next generation will live shorter lives than their parents if nothing is done to rectify these alarming stats.
It’s essential that we arm future generations with the life skills they urgently need in order to lead healthier, happier, more productive lives. I passionately believe this is every child’s human right and I hope you agree.
If you can help me get millions of people to sign this petition, we can create a movement powerful enough to force all G20 governments to take action. Food education will make a difference to the lives of the next generations, so please help. I can’t do it without you."
Jamie's asking us to do two simple things:
1. Sign the petition (http://www.change.org/jamieoliver
2. Share the petition with your friends, family and via your social media networks.
"Let’s inspire governments to do the right thing: Sign It. Share It. Let's fight for food education for every child #FoodRevolutionDay www.change.org/jamieoliver
