A lot of exhibitors, restaurants, workshops, tastings, prize games, petition signatures ... All this and much more you can find 2. and 3. September at ZeGeVege Festival.
ZeGeVege Festival, with lots of interesting things, is an opportunity to learn something new about sustainable living and vegan diet. Sustainable living is a way of life that does not harm the environment, animal life, and the welfare of people when using natural resources. Such a way of living in the long run allows the survival of plant and animal species, biodiversity, natural balance and peaceful coexistence of all living beings on the planet.
The ZeGeVege festival is of educational character and it is organized on a non-profit basis by Animal Friends Association. More than a hundred exhibitors, six restaurants, a tent with lectures and workshops, a stage with a full day program, were found in the entire Ban Jelacic Square. Except for a multitude of good vegan foods such as vege cypress, burgers of hemp, goulash, kebabs, raw pies and ice cream, visitors can also try shoes made of non-animal materials and technology of virtual reality.
Numerous lectures can include a nutritionist lecture on veggies in pregnancy and childhood, a lecture on the relationship between ecology and food, and lectures on the relation between veganism and feminism. At the workshops you can find out how to prepare delicious dishes with eggless palaces, raw sweets and the like. Visitors also expect make-up with vegan cosmetics, a prize game, and vegan condoms are shared!
The number of vegetarians and vegans is steadily increasing, so in Croatia there are more than 160 thousands of people who feed so much, and the vast majority of citizens support this growing movement and naturally likes to eat a good vegan meal. As still all public institutions have no secured vegan meal for those who ask for it, visitors can sign a petition and thus become active in respect of human rights.
The ZeGeVege Festival also includes numerous associations whose work is linked to sustainable living, and each visitor receives a free brochure in which the recipes are useful and interesting.
