Leigh-Chantelle from Viva la Vegan! is giving two talks on Sunday 21 May at Bristol VegFest.
International Activism & Engaging Abroad from 1-1:45pm, here's the blurb: How can we learn from other countries and cultures as we advocate respect for animals, animal rights, and veganism abroad? Join 20-year vegan veteran Leigh-Chantelle as she shares her expertise in International travel, activism, and promoting the vegan lifestyle. From her home in Australia, to her many travels to South East Asia and America, learn about engaging in activism while travelling, issues unique to specific regions/cultures/governments, the bond and division caused by identifying as vegan, and supporting activism abroad while sitting on your couch. Find out about some of Australia’s progresses and challenges, and how the online world has helped spread the image of diversity of the vegan movement and message around the world - or has it?
Online Etiquette & Dealing with Negativity Online from 5-5:45pm, here's the blurb:
So many people are mean online, don’t listen, don’t read, and don’t communicate well. How do we as vegans and activists remember to rise above the negativity, and focus on our aims and core values? 20-year vegan veteran Leigh-Chantelle shares her expertise on how to effectively use our time and energy to promote the positive aspects of veganism, and inspire others to lead by example online. Learn more about how to communicate effectively online, work together, deal with trolls, online etiquette, and how to be the best vegan you can be - online and beyond.
Saturday 20 - Sunday 21 May
