Opportunities to grow, thrive and make a difference.
We run both offline and online workshops, free of charge.
COMMUNICATION & RELATIONSHIPS
It can be daunting living in a world designed for non-vegans. Our workshops are designed to instil integrity in yourself and your relationships. We grow your communication skills to ensure a positive and productive experience with non-vegans - alongside providing you with tools to manage your triggers, to give you space to thrive.
Grow your confidence in speaking to members of the public, colleagues, friends and family. Our workshops develop your skills in approaching conversations about veganism and the accompanying issues. Building on positive and productive methods, our training will develop you into an effective and bold advocate.
To reach the ultimate goal of stopping animal suffering at the hands of humans as soon as possible, we need efficient, pragmatic strategies. Our workshops explore effective and creative solutions to build a path to a vegan world. We focus on the importance of grassroots organising, with the most up to date and effective approaches.
