This is simply an amazing story.  An entire city in Belgium is now going vegetarian one day a week.  All civil servants and public officials have elected to go veg one day a week to reduce their carbon footprint.  Eventually they plan to roll this out to the schools in September.  Great job Ghent, you set the example for others to follow.  Bravo!
