Vegan Vision returns to Vegfest Scotland after debut at Olympia London
Published: 30/10/2015 by Vegfest
After a successful maiden appearance at VegfestUK London 2015, Vegan Vision returns to Vegfest Scotland on Sunday December 6th as a series of one-hour consecutive sessions in vegan advocacy and living with internationally-respected experts in food and nutrition, animal rights and cruelty-free living.
Hosted by animal activist, scholar and author Kim Stallwood, Vegan Vision made a successful debut at Olympia London on October 11th 2015 – it was great to have a diversity of voices with different experiences and backgrounds and from different countries speak to the following issues of being vegan:
*What’s the most effective way to encourage and help people go — and stay — vegan?
*What’s the most effective way to campaign for living as a vegan and make vegan values mainstream?
*What do we imagine a vegan society to be like?
Although everyone was united in the interest of being vegan, no one single point of view dominated or claimed to have the monopoly on truth. There was a richness in the diversity of perspectives.
Vegan Vision shows how to live as a vegan in a non-vegan world. Join Kim Stallwood for all sessions or select the ones you would like to attend.
