Communicating Less/No Meat Consumption: Dialogue Between Meat Lovers and Avoiders

We explore the counterproductive communication that hinders the promotion of these diets between meat lovers and avoiders. Focus group and depth interviews identify ways to establish constructive dialogues in order to promote these diets.
