LifeWell's Expert Guest Speaker; Archaeologist, Anthropologist and Writer - William Bedford, explores a question he has been asking for years: why do we choose food the way we do, despite the health risks? For thousands of years humans have simply eaten whatever they could; are we just not ready for the choices the modern world gives us? Is the problem our "Western" diet or our Western Culture? A rare opportunity to gain from empowering insights into the driving influences of our culture.

How can changing what we eat, and what products we buy improve the world? This talk looks at sustainability, the environment, ethics, health and athletes to see how its possible.
13:00 - Stephen H - The Green Party - Don't Torture Animals, a new campaign group
Don't Torture Animals is a new campaigning group. We have the goal of showing shocking films on busy junctions and street corners of animals being tortured for human satisfaction. We aim to do this by mounting a large screen onto a van.
We are copying the method from Eddie Lama who pioneered this technique with great success in New York ("Witness").
One of the DTA's founder members Stephen Hendry recently slept up a tree in Brighton to prevent Council contractors cutting it down. Stephen and other members have now turned their attention to raising awareness of the suffering of animals.
14:00 - martin fodor - Vegan life and sustainable living: the tricky issues
Local sustainability expert and member of Bristol Vegans, Martin Fodor, will explore the links and tensions for those interested in both vegan lifestyle and sustainable living in an interactive workshop where everyone will be welcome to contribute. While there are a great many ways in which the two themes coincide, there are also times when we have to make difficult decisions in our lives. How can we tackle the moral arguments and value judgements for and against synthetic materials versus animal exploitation? Are vegans worried about ‘air miles' in their food? This session might help us understand how to make personal decisions. Martin's been working in the field of local sustainability for many years. He's a specialist in resources and recycling, energy, climate change, and the built environment. He joined Bristol Vegans five years ago and enjoys the creativity of the pot luck dinners people join in.

16:00 - Shiva trust - veganism is a way of life
We are devotees of Satguru Sri Ramana, and we have learnt that the word vegan means to live one's life as much as possible according to the principle of ahimsa - non-violence. We believe that god is in everything. We must learn to recognize the inter-connectedness of all life, and to reflect this realization in all of our choices. Come and explore what true veganism could mean to your life. We'll explore how devotion - Love of God - relates to veganism and show you how to make truly divine homemade chocolate truffles. All participants go home with their very own pack!
