The Associació Vegana de Catalunya is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting veganism and protecting the rights and welfare of animals.
Our mission is to work for the end of animal exploitation. We promote vegetable alternatives for products that have traditionally been made with ingredients of animal origin and we accompany people to be part of a change of consciousness that promotes respect for animal rights.
To achieve our goals, we work on awareness and education campaigns about veganism and its benefits for animals, the environment and human health.
We carry out different activities throughout the year such as cooking workshops, training courses and seminars, round tables, children’s activities, and we are the creators of the biggest vegan festival in Europe:
These goals are integral to our organization’s holistic approach to advancing a vegan lifestyle and promoting animal welfare. Addressing multiple aspects of society and lifestyle is essential to creating meaningful and lasting change.
