A new vegan festival is set to launch in London this November, bringing together the best plant-based thinkers and innovators for a day of inspiring talks and workshops.
Vegan Futures is a one-day event taking place on November 7th in London at Stour Space in Hackney Wick. Damien Clarkson, the co-founder of Vegan Futures, expresses glee for the launch of the festival as he managed to “turn what was an idea into reality”.
Vegan Futures came about after Clarkson, a Londoner, noticed a trend through his involvement with the online vegan community.
“I knew all these inspiring people who were loosely connected but had not met in real life,” says Clarkson.
“I had an idea to create something that brought people together, not just to consume products, but to talk about inspiring adventures and big ideas that can grow the vegan movement.”
After discussing it with his business partner, Jane, the pair finally set about to make their dream a reality.
The festival has teamed up with the co-founders of ‘Veganuary’ Matthew Glover and Jane Land.
The aim of the festival is “to create a better connected movement”, says Clarkson.
“I want people to come to Vegan Futures and hear an idea or meet a person that will profoundly change their life for the better,” he says.
With a rise to 20% of 16-24 year olds now identifying as vegetarian and vegan, it is evident the future of food is plant-based. As people become increasingly aware of the environmental degradation, animal suffering and health implications of animal products, Vegan Futures is primed to make a difference.
“We created Vegan Futures for anyone interested in learning more about all aspects of living a vegan lifestyle,” says Clarkson.
“This is a celebration of the great work people are doing and a chance to explore how we can create a healthier and more compassionate world together.”
Vegan Futures is accessible to vegans, vegetarians and omnivores alike, offering something for everyone.
The festival boasts over 20 talks and panel discussions aimed at activists and creators in the vegan movement.
