As we near the end of 2014, we at Brighter Green would like to wish you all the best for the holidays and New Year, and share highlights of our work in 2014: 
  • In a first-of-its-kind screening and discussion tour, Brighter Green's documentary film What's For Dinner? traveled to more than 20 cities and regions around China, including Beijing, Shanghai, and Zhejiang. BG Associate Wanqing Zhou and the film's director Jian Yi led the project. We're planning more screenings and civil society outreach in 2015.
  • BG published Beyond the Pail: The Emergence of Industrialized Dairy Systems in Asia, our most recent policy paper. It explores the trend toward increased dairy consumption and large-scale production in India, China, and countries of Southeast Asia. Our research finds that the growth of these industrial dairy systems results in severe consequences for the environment, public health, animal welfare, and rural economies.
  • With our partner the Global Forest Coalition, BG published a case study on the social and ecological effects of the soy and cattle sectors in Paraguay, along with a report on the environmental and social impacts of unsustainable livestock and soybean production. 
  • BG's executive director Mia MacDonald and associate Wanqing Zhou participated in the Global Forest Coalition's Global Strategy Meeting on Unsustainable Livestock and Feed Production in Asunción, Paraguay in November and documented first-hand the expansion of the soy frontier.
  • BG completed the fifth year of our joint East African Girls' Leadership Initiative. All of the young women are now studying in institutions of higher education and developing their leadership skills, interests, and visions.
This list represents only a fraction of this year's achievements; we want to accomplish even more in 2015. We hope you'll consider a tax-deductible donation so we can continue our unique work to increase awareness and policy and public action on issues that span the environment, animals, and global sustainability.

Thank you from Mia MacDonald and all of us at Brighter Green.
