Vegetarian Week contest: another opportunity to have a say Â and win prizes
- Got this email from IVU, too good to pass up.
>> Dear friend,
>> The vegetarian movement is gaining momentum. A growing number of
>> concerned people have decided to follow a vegetarian lifestyle because
>> of the immense suffering and dramatic ecological degradation and climate
>> changes caused by meat production and consumption, among other reasons.
>> The International Vegetarian Week aims to reinforce this ongoing
>> momentum by highlighting the great variety of blessings that such an
>> individual step reaps. After all, vegetarianism can resolve, or at least
>> alleviate, an impressive variety of hazards we are being confronted with
>> right now: increased challenges to public health, expanding global
>> hunger, immense cruelty to animals, critical environmental and climate
>> degradations, and many more.
>> With this in mind, a contest has been launched to celebrate the 2011
>> International Vegetarian Week, and at the same time prepare for the 2012
>> edition. Participants are invited to submit slogans, posters, flyers,
>> cartoons, essays, videos, poems, songs, music and other contributions
>> emphasizing the beneficial role of vegetarianism for a healthier, more
>> humane and more sustainable world. You are invited to take part in the
>> campaign, with as many entries as you wish. Depending on individual
>> motivation and artistic or technical talent, those will turn out to be
>> very different in style and expression, but they must all have one thing
>> in common: an expression of hope for more solidarity with people and
>> So please take part in the campaign by submitting your ideas in English
>> by 10 September!
>> The results of the contest will be announced on 1 October, 2011, the
>> World Vegetarian Day. Some attractive prizes are waiting and, even more
>> important, the winnersâ contributions may be used worldwide for the
>> International Vegetarian Week 2012.
