According to the definition given by the Vegan Society , "Veganism is a philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude—as far as is possible and practicable—all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of animals, humans and the environment. In dietary terms it denotes the practice of dispensing with all products derived wholly or partly from animals."
Thus, the vegan lifestyle leads to a diet without ingredients derived from animals, but also more broadly to avoid any product or service that requires the use of animals, such as experimenting on animals or using animals for fun.
The purpose of the vegan lifestyle is to put into practice the idea that man is not superior to other animals, and thus has no right to exploit and treat them as if they belonged to him.
The Vegan Life Festival advocates solidarity with every human and non-human animal that needs it. It supports individuals, groups, organizations and collectives that work for the protection of those in need and its members believe that solidarity has no and should have no limits when there are creatures in front of us who need our help.
Thus, we have a separate area of solidarity, at the disposal of which part of our income goes to the practical support of solidarity projects to human and non-human animals - always guided by their compatibility with the vegan way of life.
The Vegan Life Festival promotes the equality of all individuals (human and non-human) who have the ability to feel pain. We recognize the inalienable right of every individual, whether human, sexual, sexual orientation, age, ability, appearance, descent, or any other animal, to be perceived as the property of no one or means of achieving other people's purposes.
That is why we do not accept, in the context of our events, the promotion of ideas that oppose the value of equality.
The team of Vegan Life Festival innovates by introducing a separate administrative department of Ecology and Waste Management. Part of the lectures and workshops are always dedicated to the topic of environmental protection, while a significant part of our exhibitors provide ecological products. At the same time, in each of our events we seek to reduce as much as possible the disposable plastic while we have gradually banned the disposal of plastic bottles, straw, glasses and bag from the exhibitors' counters.
We offer coolers with drinking water and we encourage people who visit our festivals to bring with them utensils and reusable bags for the overall reduction of waste. In each of our festivals we have established and in collaboration with other organizations a spare parts bazaar of clothes and accessories to promote the reuse of clothing, of which we offer the rest to people in need. Finally, the majority of the products bearing our logo and available from us are made from ecological materials.
