How to turn a man vegan in 45 minutes Less than a third of vegans are men, while many of the biggest health problems and social factors affecting men’s lives can be significantly improved by moving to a plant-based diet. So it’s lucky that many more men are now seeing the benefits of a vegan lifestyle—as well as re-finding their compassion for other beings and the environment. Join Dr Alex Lockwood (vegan studies scholar and author of The Pig in Thin Air) for a lively, non-judgemental presentation and interactive debate drawing on his recent research interviews with actors, sports stars and normal blokes, that explores the links between masculinity and health, men’s lives and the future of our planet, all in 45 minutes. // @alexlockwood

14.00-15.30 - Animal (De)liberation FILM – A Film made by Jan Deckers to support his book, he will be there to introduce his film.

15.30 – 16.30 - Elizabeth King from the Vegan Approach – A Workshop on 10 easy steps to living a vegan lifestyle.


11.00-12.30 Film: Live and Let Live - Six people who have switched to veganism, including former butchers and factory farmers, share their stories to examine the relationship between animals and people.

12.45-15.15 COWSPIRACY, THE SUSTAINABILITY SECRET is a groundbreaking feature-length environmental documentary following intrepid filmmaker Kip Andersen as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today – and investigates why the world’s leading environmental organisations are too afraid to talk about it.
Animal agriculture is the leading cause of deforestation, water consumption and pollution, is responsible for more greenhouse gases than the transportation industry, and is a primary driver of rainforest destruction, species extinction, habitat loss, topsoil erosion, ocean “dead zones,” and virtually every other environmental ill. Yet it goes on, almost entirely unchallenged.

15.30-16.30 Julia Leydon – MUFFIN IN A MUG – cookery demo
