Vegan Dilemmas - a discussion on dilemmas and tricky issues for new and longer term vegans

When we become vegan, and as we continue with a vegan lifestyle we encounter a series of challenges and dilemmas. 
Typical questions and challenges can range across all aspects of our lives: how to incorporate your other values as a vegan;  what to do with old garments;  eating out with friends; avoiding disposable plastic and being green; where should i take my business – the superstore or the vegan trader; and the usual discussions about protein… the aim is to allow people to arrive at their own answers while they take their vegan living forwards. 
This workshop will explore some of these typical and topical dilemmas, with contributions from participants, and Martin will lead a debate how we can resolve them for ourselves.
