A new online hub is aimed at empowering and inspiring vegan and vegan-curious teenagers.

The Teen Hub, created by The Vegan Society, offers a host of information, tips, and advice for young people, including recipes, and how to navigate social situations, living in a non-vegan home, and your rights at school and in the workplace.

Teenagers and compassionate lifestyles

According to The Vegan Society, polling data it commissioned in 2019 (gathered by Ipsos Mori), shows that almost half of all vegans are in the 15-35 age category, with ‘an increasing number of teenagers adopting compassionate lifestyles and acting as the driving force behind the rise of veganism in recent years’.

But, the Society says, adopting a vegan lifestyle as a young person can be difficult, which is why it created the hub to ‘provide support and reassurance that vegan teens don’t need to miss out on anything, and instead, will thrive as they adopt a vegan lifestyle’.

‘Challenges and objections’

In a statement sent to Plant Based News, Matt Turner, spokesperson for The Vegan Society, said: “While veganism has never been more accessible in the supermarket aisles, the process of going vegan is still different for everyone.

“Teenagers who are still in school or living with their parents may face challenges and objections that adults wouldn’t, which is why our Teen Hub is a vital tool in helping those who need guidance, support or inspiration to thrive as young vegans.

“We discover who we really are during our teenage years. Opinions are formed and futures are partly defined. A resource such as the Teen Hub is a much-needed, invaluable platform for those who are curious about becoming a vegan or need support or advice along their vegan journey.”
