Talks for April 2018 now confirmed

The talks schedule for April 2018 is now confirmed as…

11:00am Richard Deboo: “This is an emergency: the imperative of being vegan”
He will be presenting the urgent moral, environmental and health issues that require a social shift to veganism.

Dr Moore has previously worked internationally as a TV presenter, scientific researcher and university lecturer.
A committed vegan and animal lover who believes that through good nutrition we can alleviate, reverse and even cure many physical, emotional and cognitive disorders.
1:05pm Sean: But I thought Dairy was good for me?
In this presentation Sean shows how the Dairy industry over the years has intentionally and cleverly duped the consumer into believing that Dairy comes from Happy animals and that consuming Dairy is good for them when in fact the opposite is true. Sean will offer fully checkable facts and figures and will also talk about the Vegan Dairy alternatives and their benefits.
This talk will be of interest to Meat eaters, Vegetarians and Vegans wanting to learn more about the Dairy industry.

1:35pm Pig Save/The Save Movement
The power of bearing witness, how to get active in your local area.
2:15: “The Simple Truth”
The ethics of veganism, our treatment of animals and how we are defined by our choices.

3:15 Sea Shepherd
Sea Shepherd UK is a registered marine conservation charity whose mission is to end the destruction of habitat and slaughter of wildlife around the UK’s coastline and across the world’s oceans in order to conserve and protect ecosystems and species
