So, the 21st and 22nd of May s Vegfest. Ah yea! Food, kids workshops, music, talks, food workshops, stalls, tasters and thousands of compassionate people in one place, Bristol Amphitheatre! (Plus a whole lot more!).
I’ve been lucky enough to get a slot on the Saturday to give my talk ‘The Power of food. And the Power of the YOUniverse’. In a (walnut) nutshell it’s about reminding people their actions have an impact, and that they can use their skills and time to positively affect our world and universe.
UPDATE: My talk is now available to watch below:
So what can one little old person do you may ask? Well, more than we think sometimes. I have made copies of the free film ‘Making the Connection’, given them away and people have gone vegan because of the film. Some people need to be told the realities about the horrors of animal products, some need to be shown how tasty vegan food is, while others just simply need an inspiring athlete to convince them. We all have skills that we can use to help too, we just have to try a few things and look for the most effective ways we can each help.
I have created a website page about spreading the message and getting active.
Youtube is also a powerful tool, and there are so many amazing vegan channels out there now. The power of Youtube is put together really well in poem form by the humble Vegan Geezer above.
He will also be speaking on the Saturday at 1pm in the Activists Workshops tent, and his activists workshop is called ‘Effectiveness of Youtube for vegan activists’.
Another great Youtuber is the Vegan Activist, who has created a collection of really educational and inspiring videos all about veganism. Ranging from complete Vegan guides of things like food and cosmetics, to this one ‘How to turn people vegan’.
I’ve also made a little promo video for the Vegfest events to give people a little taster to what goes on at the festivals.
And if your not already going to Bristol, why not? Have a great day!
