Saturday


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!?

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.
