IFA's Co-Founder, Seble Nebiyeloul, attended the UN Conference on
Climate Change as part of a coalition of non-governmental organizations, including Brighter Green and A Well Fed World. The coalition pushed for initiatives that cause a speedy, society-wide shift to plant-based diets in order to preserve an abundant and peaceful world.
As documented by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization report
entitled "Livestock's Long Shadow" and numerous other studies, a major
shift to plant-based diets and away from animal products, is integral
to avoiding the impending global climate catastrophe.

The Vegan Students Association of Togo Promote Healthy, Eco-Friendly and Compassionate Lifestyles
|The Vegan Students Association of Togo has been working on a campaign entitled "Welcome to the Vegan University" from September 1st thought November 31st. The campaign was organized to coincide with large numbers of new student enrollment and registration for classes. Students in Togo were treated to soya and gluten kebabs and other vegan products during a weekly event intended to raise consciousness about veganism and educate people about the benefits of a vegan lifestyle. The Vegan Students Association of Togo is not only concerned with personal health and compassion but also the disproportionate impact that animal agriculture has on environmental degradation and food shortages in Africa.
