|摘要||Industrial livestock production generates greenhouse gases in the estimated range from 14.5 to 51 percent, and seriously worsens the global warming phenomenon. The major risk factor for many deadly diseases is the unhealthy diet. The most common unhealthy diet is too much meat consumption, or too few vegetables and fruits.
This paper proposes the healthy Flexitarian Diet (FD) and Flexitarianism Culture Movement (FCM). FD seems to have the advantages on human health, livestock, mother Earth, and medical spends. These four advantages give authors a good reason to initiate a social movement, i.e., FCM.
This paper draws a fuzzy frame to the success of the FCM, i.e., 1. providing the reasons (or motives) to the public, risks such as: global warming, superbugs, human health, diseases, and government spends 2. learning problem-solving abilities: the eight competencies suggested by UNESCO, and 3. suggesting the necessary methodologies (or tools) for the whole management process: for the purpose of increasing the efficacy of the FCM efforts, we need to know that we are dealing with the complex system problem. Authors recommend the Soft Systems Methodology (SSM) may be a good approach.
