12.00 - Mark Gold (Animal Aid) - Veganism is more than a lifestyle choice
There are many reasons for vegans to be cheerful - numbers increasing dramatically, health and environmental benefits becoming obvious. But is there a danger that the core revolutionary message - 'hurt no living thing' - could be sidelined in the latest celebrity health fad or the search for a perfect animal-free sponge cake!?
1.00 - Kerry McCarthy - New Government, New Policies for Animals?
In the aftermath of the General Election, Kerry McCarthy, who was the first vegan MP in Parliament, talks about what we can expect from the new government. How can activists, campaigners and those who care about animal welfare, the environment and public health/ food policy have the maximum impact on policy?
- Vegan ethics and dog rescue
3.00 - Jade Ollivierre - Go natural with your Cosmetics
Join the founder of new eco-ethical brand Native Unearthed for an interesting and varied discussion on the benefits and power of natural cosmetics! Are you really aware of the positive impact that going natural could make? Are you in tune with some of the hidden nasties in synthetic cosmetics? Join us for a relaxed and informal chat at Vegfest Bristol to find out more.

2.00 - Martin Fodor - Low Carbon Living and a Vegan lifestyle
Our diet and lifestyle choices affect ourselves and the rest of planet - it's not just what we consume, but where it's from that matters.
There's growing recognition that a low carbon life avoids meat and dairy.
A healthy, compassionate diet and lifestyle can also be sustainable. How do we make the food choices, the other decisions, and protect the planet at the same time? A workshop approach should allow plenty of scope for discussion.
