Students Vote Against Beef & Lamb In Canteens Of This Renowned University
London: In a major development, students of Oxford University have voted to ban beef and lamb from canteens in the campus as a step to fight climate change.
The motion was passed by the Oxford Student Union by a two-thirds majority.
“As the UK’s premier university, the nation looks to Oxford for leadership, but Oxford has shown a lack of leadership in addressing climate change. The banning of beef and lamb at university-catered events and outlets is a feasible and effective strategy to help the university meet its revised 2030 goal. A change at the university level will open the gates for similar change at the college level,” the motion noted.
According to the Daily Mail, though the 22,000-member union represents students at Oxford University, it doesn’t have the power to change university policy.
