Vegans can have a tough time raising awareness.
They can’t just send you loads of spam.
Instead, they prefer to host huge, 500-capacity festivals dedicated to spreading the word about veganism through TED-style talks, delicious (lentil-free) street food, and creative workshops. Festivals like Vevolution – which, returning for its second year, is coming to the hallowed halls of the Royal Institution this November, and promises to include…
1) Talks and panel discussions from vegans who er, really know their onions – from entrepreneurs like Matthew Glover (the founder of Veganuary) to activists like the Mercy for Animals foundation, as well as research scientists, fitness enthusiasts, and journalists;
2) Vegan street food from animal-avoiding traders, like BBQ jackfruit burritos from Club Mexicana, dairy-free margharitas from One Planet Pizza and pie and mash from the Young Vegans; plus
3) Workshops on everything from creating activist zines and starting a movement, to the art of fermentation with the folks at community kitchen, Made in Hackney.
Getting in a pickle has never been so useful.
