An exciting educational initiative supported by and supporting educational professionals interested in encouraging the teaching of empathy from a vegan perspective.

The vegan way of life has widely recognised benefits for the planet, human health and social justice as well as being an active expression of compassion towards all sentient beings with whom we share the earth.

Our aim is to provide children and young people with the knowledge and skills to critically think about the way we define and use animals and inter-related health, social justice and environmental issues. This teaching will enable them to develop their own moral values and flourish as empathetic and ethically responsible citizens.

We will create and recommend materials for teachers concerned with encouraging empathy, compassion, good health and sustainable choice-making in their students. These resources will align with schools existing goals in educating children and blend easily into established subject areas, enhancing the content already provided. empowers all to be heroes to all species, opening hearts, minds to the impact our choices have.

Pregnant vegans, vegan parents-to-be and vegan breastfeeders – this site is all for you!

We’re exploring all of your needs to be your best pregnant vegan self!

Why do pregnant vegans need extra information and support?

The world’s largest organisation of nutritionists has confirmed that a vegan diet can be perfectly healthy for pregnancy and beyond. However, no matter how many professional bodies and nutritionists support the idea of a fully vegan pregnancy, the truth is that people do have strong feelings about both veganism and pregnancy.

This means that even experienced vegans may encounter doubt, hostility, skepticism and even bullying or abuse on their pregnancy journey.

Having high-quality information to hand can help enormously when your ethical choices are belittled or doubted while you are trying to do your best for both your baby and for animals.
