Would you like to be a more effective vegan advocate? Would you like to be a stronger voice for all animals? Then these upcoming "Effective Vegan Advocacy" two-day workshops run by the Centre for Vegan Advocacy might be of interest. They will be held in Brisbane (22 to 23 February), Sydney (25 to 26 February) and Melbourne (4 to 5 March).
The workshops will be led by Dr Melanie Joy and Tobias Leenaert. Dr Melanie Joy is a psychologist, speaker and author of Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows. Tobias Leenaert is an animal advocate and author at the Vegan Strategist blog.
The workshops aim to empower vegan advocates and organisations and provide participants with tools to improve their impact for animals.
The workshops are also an opportunity to network with others, as well as to gain insight from the trainers.
You can get some idea of what will be in the workshops by viewing Toward Rational, Authentic Food Choices by Melanie Joy and reading Speaking Truth to Power by Melanie Joy.
Topics covered by the workshops include effective communication, normalizing veganism, strategic vegan outreach and sustainable activism. Lunch and snacks will be provided. The workshops have been brought to Australia by Animals Australia.
