The year 2021 in review: record amount of new vegan restaurants!

margo's amsterdam

We started the year with closed restaurants, we’re ending the year with closed restaurants. BUT despite corona this year a record amount of new vegan places opened!! Eleven new restaurants. On top of that, four existing restaurants decided to skip all animal products and go fully vegan, so that makes fifteen in total!

The Amsterdam Happy Cow page is currently listing 468 vegan and vegan-friendly adresses, 63 of them fully vegan. And Lonely Planet now included info on vegan restaurants in their latest Amsterdam guidebook, adding “Long at the forefront of vegetarian cuisine, Amsterdam led the way with vegan dining and has numerous restaurants citywide.” Read more

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.

Vegan Amsterdam Festival 2018 – the photos

Whooo like a week ago we organised our own vegan festival at OT301! We aimed to organise a festival offering not just vegan delicacies but also food for thought and cultural stuff. Showing the diverse ways in which people are engaged with veganism.

So we had lectures about vegan advocacy, spoken word with lyrics written for the occasion, bands playing, food and animal rights stalls and much more! It was a beautiful sunny day and hundreds of people visited – great that so many people in Amsterdam are interested in veganism these days! See you next time perhaps! Click here to see the photos.
