A leading vegan festival has published 40 talks by inspiring figures online so anyone can listen for free.
London-based event Vevolution – whose attendess were recently described in an article by The Guardian food critic Grace Dent as ‘young, beautiful, vibrant, popular on Instagram, always out for dinner and by large, strictly vegan’ – has filmed talks at its events and made them freely available on YouTube since its inception in 2016.
The organization has now published 40 talks and aims to have 80 available online for free by the end of 2018.

Founder Damien Clarkson says: “Social media has been at the heart of Vevolution’s growth.
“It blends meaningful real life events with change making online. People always find inspiration and connection at our events and they want to share this with others, without social media this movement wouldn’t have been possible.”
The talks are also used in the Vevolution Podcast – which debuted at number six in the global education chart.
Clarkson said: “The response to the podcast has been great. We have had more than 5,000 downloads in the first month. We are committed to developing high quality educational content that people can access freely around the world.”
Next week Vevolution will debut in America in Los Angeles by hosting a stage at theSeed Food and Wine Summit. This is the first step in the startups plans to bring Vevolution to the United States in the near future.
