Vegconomist – European Vegan Summit is back!
The European Vegan Summit (EVS), the very first event of its kind in Europe, returns this September to open a global discussion on food production and its impact on animal rights, human rights, and the environment.
Politicians, experts, scientists, media activists, NGOs, and businesses will have the unique opportunity to meet virtually to exchange their insights and expertise on the possible solutions to transition to a plant-based society. “We believe it is high time to start connecting the dots between the world of human rights, environmental rights and animal rights. It is impossible to create a modern nation and develop competitive economies without changing the food system. Only an economy without animal exploitation can provide the answer to the challenges brought by climate catastrophe,” outlines the vision of EVS.
The Summit’s inauguration will launch with a plenary session where influential speakers will give keynote speeches on activism, economy, politics, and science: MEPs Sylwia Spurek, vegan investor Sebastiano Castiglioni, and Prof. Philip Lymbery, global CEO of Compassion in World Farming and president of the Eurogroup for Animals.
