Should People Go Vegan? BBC Radio Ulster – Farming Matters 7 January 2020


Go Vegan World was invited onto BBC Radio Ulster’s Farming Matters programme to participate in a discussion about the growth of veganism, farming, climate change and the ethics of animal use.

Our Barbara Bolton spoke about the Go Vegan World educational campaign, which started in 2015 and which is currently running on buses in Northern Ireland, as well as across the UK and Ireland. Our campaign focuses on the sentience of other animals and the fact that humans should not use animals as resources or kill them.

This interview addresses the history and meaning of veganism and its interconnectedness with human rights and environmental protection.

We were asked if we demonise farmers, which gave us an opportunity to point out that everyone who is consuming animal products is culpable and we do not target farmers or anyone else involved in the animal-using industries. In fact, we want to work with farmers to help them transition away from using animals, to plant-based farming or an alternative use of the land which will be beneficial for us all.

Roasting Vegetables Made Easy

Veganism, Methane and the End of the World As We Now Know It

A vegan or vegetarian diet can be a wonderful way of maintaining and restoring health as well as showing the world you care about the well being of animals who suffer at the hands of those who chose to eat them.
