About the presentation
Why and how should you start a Vegan Student Association?
Abstract: This talk will be dedicated to presenting and explaining the value of starting a Vegan Student Association and how to do this. Since 2018 students have been starting such associations around the Netherlands aiming to build a supportive community of vegan(-minded) students who would increase awareness about animal agriculture and its impact on the environment in their universities as well as create a facilitating environment with the purpose of making veganism easier, more enjoyable and affordable. In 2019 they have recognized the significance of sharing ideas and resources as well as helping other cities start vegan student associations. This is why the VSA Netherlands network has been established. Today the students would like to bring the idea to global attention and inspire students in other countries to start similar initiatives!
