Veganism: a revolutionary life style
22-25 July 2009 - PUC-Rio - Brazil
The world longs for peace, respect and dignity. The Environment is being mercilessly destroyed and gives back its answer. Natural resources are being exhausted by the unsustainable exploitation imposed by a wasteful mode of life. We lose species diversity without even knowing it. Diseases, obesity, suffering and hunger abound.
After so many years of ideals of 'peace and love', 'gender and ethnic equality', 'freedom of speech' and 'respect for nature' we still crawl on, delegating to others the task of bringing about lasting, real changes. By changing our life style we can play a vital role in the construction of the better world we all want, where the white dove of peace can rest her tired feet.
Come to know the vegan life style and take the reins of your life in your own hands:
be the change you want to see in the world
we are aware of the global impact air travel causes, however, that networking between friends, that have met, and like each other, is e very powerful medium...compared to links where u only know the other from emails... imo of course...
however, michael klaper and some others are video-conferencing... and no doubt there will be a workshop on a strategy for this, for the next one... or at least for considering future options...
is key ingredient to a sustainable,
successful, human society...
Be the change.
