Description

THE EVENT

How can we create a vegan world as soon as possible?
How far should we prioritise being purely “vegan”, or is it important to be flexible?
What attitude should we take to big companies who seem to be jumping on the vegan bandwagon?

Tobias Leenaert will give a talk on "How to Create a Vegan World" (also the title of his book) followed by a chance for the audience to ask exciting questions like those above!

Anybody who believes that veganism (or vegetarianism, or reducetarianism) will benefit the world would benefit from coming to this listen, think and talk about how we can bring about changes in this direction as quickly and effectively as possible.

The talk itself will last approximately an hour, which will leave plenty of time for questions and discussion; so even those familiar with Leenaert’s work will have an opportunity to move the discussion forward.

This talk is brought to you by organisers from Effective Animal Altruism London and KCL Animal Rights Society / KCL Animal Rights Society.


THE SPEAKER

Tobias Leenaert is the author of How to Create a Vegan World: a Pragmatic Approach (Lantern Press, 2017) and of the blog, The Vegan Strategist (http://veganstrategist.org). He thinks about strategy and gives presentations world wide about vegan advocacy. Most of those are part of trainings that he gives together with Melanie Joy, for the Center for Effective Vegan Advocacy (CEVA). He’s also co-founder of ProVeg International, a new pro-vegan food awareness organization that wants to reduce the consumption of animal products worldwide with 50% by 2040. And he identifies as an Effective Altruist. He think about the best ways to achieve a compassionate society.
