What is ‘World Vegan Day World Vegan Day originated in England in 1994, when vegan animal rights activist Louise Wallis was looking for a suitable setting to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Vegan Society. As President of the Vegan Society, her aim was not only to emphasise the continued existence of a vegan association, but also to draw attention to the fact that the word ‘vegan’ had found its way into the English language.
Wallis set November 1 as the date, and since then, World Vegan Day has provided a welcome occasion for vegans in all parts of the world to celebrate and further promote veganism with all its positive aspects - For the Animals, For Health & For the Planet.
There are lots of jobs on the day we will need help with (set up/set down, photos, organising, cleaning etc). If you can help us on the day, please contact us. Your help will be much appreciated!
