Forwarded email I received from Jamie Oliver – I direct linked to the petition – they seem to be using tracking software so I don’t want to mess up their stats too much…
Jamie and the Food Revolution Team need your help.
On 19 – 20 Sept 2011, policy leaders from around the world will come together in New York for the United Nations High-Level Summit on Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) – which encompass smoking, alcohol & diet-related illnesses.
• Jamie’s plea
Watch Jamie’s video message asking for people all across the world to join the Food Revolution & help countries & global leaders work together to reduce mortalities from NCDs & obesity related diseases.
• UN Webcasts
Find out how the UN Gen-Sec responded to Jamie’s question ‘Over 35 million people die of non communicable diseases every year, how can we reduce this?’ and what was discussed in yesterday’s press conference on NCDs
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
Make a stand against obesity & NCDs. Email your UN representative in NY to urge them & your head of state to attend this UN Summit. Sign the Petition here!
Millions of people die across the globe each year from NCDs which could be prevented, it is so important that we act now.
