    Their Future is in Our Hands

    World Vegan Day Melbourne 2019 will be held on Sunday November 10th. FREE, volunteer-run, community event is heading into its 17th year and we're planning for it to be bigger than ever!

    This one-day event (10am-6pm), offers a broad and exciting range of examples of what it means to live vegan. Whether you are passionate about health and wellbeing, fitness, cooking, beauty and body care, fashion, kids and family activities, politics, business, animal rights, sustainability, self-sufficiency, music, creativity, or just love devouring delicious food and drinks, this event is for you.

    The theme for World Vegan Day Melbourne 2019 is “Their future is in our hands”. This year we have seen a huge climate change rally generated from passionate young Australians who care about their future. At no time in our history has an awareness of our environment been more relevant than right now.

    Annually 70 billion farmed animals are killed worldwide for food consumption. It also takes 50,000 litres of water to produce 1kg of beef compared to 500 litres for 1kg of potatoes. Australia has lost 92% of its forest and bushland due to the grazing of animals, while the grain we feed cattle worldwide yearly is enough to feed 8.7 billion people, more than the world’s population. From an individual point of view, it is estimated that each year every vegan saves 365 animals, while also saving 1.7 millions of water, 3.3 tonnes of CO2, 1,000 square metres of forest and 7 tonnes of grain.

    If we want our future generations to enjoy the world, we have to act now to make better choices that can not only save the planet, and animal suffering but also help improve human health. Choosing to live vegan is the single easiest and most effective way to effect this positive change.

    Regardless of whether you are already vegan or simply curious come along to this event and find out how easy and fun this lifestyle can be.
