World Vegan Day

World Vegan Day

World Vegan Day is an annual event celebrated by vegans around the world. The benefits of veganism for humans and the natural environment are celebrated through activities such as setting up stalls and planting memorial trees. Speaking in 2011, the founded of World Vegan Day said: “We knew the [Vegan] Society had been founded in November 1944 but didn’t know the exact date, so I decided to go for 1 November, partly because I liked the idea of this date coinciding with Samhain/Halloween and the Day of the Dead – traditional times for feasting and celebration, both apt and auspicious.”

 

Activity Ideas:

  • Try hosting a vegan taste test with vegan and non-vegan treats
  • Enjoy a no-bake vegan recipe and decide if you like it – here
  • Discuss if you would try vegetarianism or veganism and why
