Belgian City Will Become First Vegetarian

A Belgian city will become the first in the world to become vegetarian at least one day a week.


It will start this week from Ghent. There will be a regular weekly meatless day in which civil servants and elected councillors will opt for vegetarian meals.


Ghent's declares the day as a "veggie day". The UN says livestock is responsible for nearly one-fifth of global greenhouse gas emissions.


Public officials and politicians will be the first to give up meat for a day. School children will follow suit with their own veggiedag in September.

Around 90,000 so-called "veggie street maps" are now being printed to help people find the city's vegetarian eateries.


It is hoped the move will cut Ghent's environmental footprint and help tackle obesity.
