Group Description

The task of building vegetarian culture has been done vegetarians with a worldview throughout the millennia, and vegetarian diet is intertwined in their understanding with all their other beliefs.



Vegetarians today, both religious and secular, intertwine beliefs, both dietary and nondietary.



Issues in culture building arise constantly whenever there is talk about "increasing the number of vegetarians".



But modern social science understandings of culturebuilding OUGHT to give us profound insights into the importance of economics, material infrastructure, celebration, and intergenerational communication.



The Building-Vegetarian-Culture list is about deliberately and intelligently building vegetarian culture, assessing the current state of our society, and addressing gaps, deficiencies, strengths, resources, and opportunities, and consciously and effectively constructing the resources and strengths we do not yet have and enjoy.



The list is NOT about promoting particular events (e.g. a science fiction discussion held at Veggie Heaven or any other vegetarian restaurant, nor even official local vegetarian society events BECAUSE the list's CLEAR and EXPLICIT - and clearly stated - purpose is the reasoned discussion among vegetarian activists, advocates, and long-timers about how ALL of us collectively, "in the aggregate", can build an emergent culture -- either parochially or at large - that is both fundamentally vegetarian AND overtly pro-vegetarian in its values and stated priorities - that all SHOULD be vegetarian!



THIS list is not for every vegan or vegetarian, but for those who are able and committed to contribute their relevant expertise to "building vegetarian culture."



We are a nuts and bolts "how can and will we do it" list. For that reason, THIS list isn't for every veg*an, but for those able and committed to contribute their relevant skills to building vegetarian culture.
