Vegan students unite!

vegan student association amsterdam

Inspired by similar student associations in cities like Gent and recently Groningen, a group of students in Amsterdam decided to establish the Vegan Student Association Amsterdam!

According to their mission statement, it was founded with the aim of “increasing the visibility of the vegan movement and start a conversation about animal rights, building at the same time a network of like-minded students. We offer support to anyone interested in approaching the vegan lifestyle.”

Their first event will be Sunday next week, a vegan picnic at Vondelpark on Sunday June 2nd! More info here.

Follow them on Facebook or Instagram.
