Until he extends his circle of compassion to all living things, man will not himself find peace.
~ Albert Schweitzer
The purpose of this campaign is to get people to take time to reconsider the effects of industrialized farming on humans, animals and the environment by educating people about vegan lifestyles.
World GO VEGAN Week is also about celebrating what it means to be vegan. Veganism enables people to live in balance with all of Earth’s creatures and promote freedom from exploitation for animals as part of their everyday lives. Modern animal agriculture is cruel and violent toward the chickens, cows, pigs and other creatures used to make meat, milk and eggs. During World GO VEGAN Week, we encourage people to become conscious of what – and who – they are eating, the effect it has on the world, and that a non-violent alternative exists. †
