What is “Supporting”?
Supporting a Thunderclap campaign is like signing a petition but with the added power of simultaneously sharing a message. You and every other supporter are standing up for an idea with the power of your voice.
How do I support?
Choose between your Twitter, Facebook, or Tumblr account to grant Thunderclap permission to post a message on your behalf. That’s it! If the campaign reaches its support goal by the deadline, Thunderclap will automatically post your message and all other supporters' messages at the same time.
A note on privacy
When you log into Thunderclap using your Twitter, Facebook, or Tumblr account, you’re allowing our platform to share a single message on your behalf. That’s all. We use the absolute minimum permissions possible to post a message on your behalf. The platforms we integrate with sometimes include additional permissions that we do not use and we will not post anything from your friends' accounts.
It’s predicted that there could be more than 9 billion people in
the world by 2050. Demand for food will increase by 60%, while climate change
and rising income in developing countries will alter the global picture.
New technology and sources of food will change what’s available,
while complex pressures on supply chains will bring challenge such as traceability,
volatile prices and even crime.
It’s no wonder that we believe we’ve lost our connection to the
food system and feel powerless in our relationship with food. Here’s your chance to change that! We want you to be part of the conversation about our
food future so that it protects your interests and respects your rights.
Get involved! On 18
February 2016 the Food Standards Agency will bring together 200 experts
to discuss Our Food Future. They’ll be discussing how changes to the global
food system might affect us and what we
all can do to get the best outcome for all of us. The debate will be broadcast
live, and you’ll be able to ask questions and feed in comments as it happens.
Please pledge your support by joining one or more of your social media accounts so that you can share the invite to your friends and family join in the #OurFoodFuture conversation!
ps. If this is the first time you've done this, you're probably asking: What is a Thunderclap? It allows you and others to pledge to tweet or Facebook a message on the same day - at the exact same time - in order to achieve maximum effect.
Thank you for helping to shape #OurFoodFuture!

Thank you to all of you who lent your voices to help shape #OurFoodFuture!
signing up for our Thunderclap, you helped us reach over 900,000 people
yesterday. Not only that, but you helped us get some great digital engagement at the #OurFoodFuture
summit - we reached millions, over 6,000 people logged in to watch the live broadcast, and our
hashtag trended on Twitter for over 3 hours!
This is just the beginning, but we need all of us to be involved. Thanks for helping us work towards a better food
We're the Food Standards Agency. Our work touches everyone in the country. We all eat. We want people to understand the truth about where our food comes from and what’s in it, and to have access to an affordable healthy diet, now and in the future.
