RESULTS from recent trio of POLLS after VegfestUK London 2015

2015-10-15 
| by Editor | Posted in Vlog, Polls

Many thanks to all of you who have cast your votes on our recent trio of polls on the following subjects which were debated at VegfestUK London 2015 just gone (links to Facebook event pages are included):

Are Single-Issue Campaigns taking Animal Rights forwards / backwards? https://www.facebook.com/events/1652154744997325 

Are 'vegan' celebrities such as Ricky Gervais and Beyonce good / harmful for the vegan movement? https://www.facebook.com/events/605723969570640 

What do you think is the optimal vegan diet for health? https://www.facebook.com/events/116309275389314/ 

 

 

There’s been quite a turnaround of results ever since the debates at Olympia London – see below for results from October 4th to October 17th at 6pm:

 

POLL on Single-Issue Campaigns

Total votes: 446

Backwards: 81.17%

Forwards: 18.83%

 

POLL on ‘Vegan’ Celebrities

POLL on optimal vegan diet for health

Mainly raw: 56.62%

Mainly cooked: 37.85%

Fully raw: 3.69%

Fully cooked: 1.85%

 

Polls are now closed but if these are of interest we might look at the possibility of re-starting the polls above again in a few months’ time. Further thoughts on these subjects are welcome.

 

In the meantime, if you’d like to watch the debates on these subjects again, please click on the videos below (video credit: Robin Ottoson):

Big thanks too to our courageous, knowledgeable and eloquent panellists and moderators for making these debates happen, plus not to mention our capable AV team for helping us create history with 2 of the 3 debates above streamed live worldwide on Youtube.

 

And guess what, we’ll be filming and releasing more and more talks from Vegfest events in future so that those who don’t manage to get to the events can enjoy their favourite talks in the comfort of their desks in front of their laptops, tablets etc.
