With the support of various partners such as school caterers, faculty and student groups, Green Monday’s Global University Alliance covers 1000 primary & secondary schools and universities with 2.5 million students around the world. The Program is a holistic platform to promote all green initiatives. Apart from launching Green Monday Menu to simply shift the meat and plant-based options offered at on-campus canteens, the Program also offers diverse and fun activities such as talks, exhibitions, and smoothie rides to engage, enable and encourage students to go green.
Green Monday’s Global University Alliance has been one of the most successful programs in raising students’ awareness on green eating habits. Using Hong Kong as an example, after the Program launched, the average plant-based meal order rate at all schools soared from 4% to 42% in just one year.
By educating the students about how going plant-based one day per week can help to conserve the environment – becoming mindful of what is put on our plates, where it is from and how it is produced, fueled by the ethos “From Mindful Eating to Mindful Living.” By Adopting a healthier, more environmentally friendly and more humane diet, each person acts out of compassion and the understanding that each of us, as inseparable parts of our environment, can make easy choices to save animal lives and ourselves.

Green Monday’s goal is not to convert people to be vegan or vegetarian. Our approach is to encourage the entire community to adopt a plant-based lifestyle. We never employ a blaming or shaming approach but encouraging a fun and positive environment to go green.
Green Monday is a holistic platform that not only promotes plant-based diet but also encourages partners to incorporate other sustainability initiatives, such as local sourcing, waste reduction, energy conservation and other green outreach .
Since Green Monday encourages baby steps, our “green meal” definition is meatless rather than vegan. However, we recommend putting a disclaimer on dishes that contain eggs or dairy products.
Green Monday selections have to be well-designed and nutritious. It should stand apart from the traditional images of vegetarian food, such as plain and unappetizing. Proposed menu will be reviewed by the Green Monday team.
Monday is a must but we highly recommend the Green Monday menus and/or promotions to be valid seven days a week for both lunch and dinner.
