World Vegan Day returns on Nov. 1
On November 1, many nations around the world celebrate World Vegan Day, a global day that focuses on veganism.
Let's find out what the goals of this anniversary are, and what initiatives are planned.
What is World Vegan Day
World Vegan Day was established in 1994 by the Vegan Society, the oldest vegan association founded in 1944 in the United Kingdom by Donald Watson and Elsie Shrigley.
Over time, the event has expanded its duration, becoming first "World Vegan Week" and later "World Vegan Month," with special initiatives lasting throughout November.
Objectives of the event, held for the first time on the occasion of the association's 50th anniversary, are to shed light on the vegan movement and to spread awareness and correct information about what is now in effect considered a lifestyle. The day also aims to raise awareness of the mistreatment of animals in intensive livestock farms, the important ethical and environmental repercussions of such farms, and many other issues.
Initiatives and special events for World Vegan Day
World Vegan Day -and World Vegan Month more generally -is an ideal time to approach or learn more about veganism.
This is made possible by intense participatory activity on the part of the vegan sector, which is seeing more vegan products available in physical and online stores, with vegan offerings from different parts of the planet. There is no shortage of special initiatives and promotional events for vegan recipes, clothing, and accessories.
There are multiple vegan and animal rights organizations in Italy that are adhering to World Vegan Day. To learn more, we suggest contacting associations, movements and nonprofits in your area.
