Program

01 – 08 June, 2014
“For The People, For The Planet, And For The Animals”

Park Hotel Persey – Varna (Bulgaria)

The aim of the 14th International Vegan Festival, organized by Lubomir Stoyanov and the founder of the IVF Kirsten Jungsberg in the Persey Hotel in Varna, from 01 to June 08, 2014, is to support and promote the vegan lifestyle as a healthy, ethical and ecologically responsible alternative to the consumption of meat and animal products whose production, marketing and distribution involves the exploitation and destruction of billions of living beings and an unprecedented unsustainable waste of the natural resources of the planet, which has a devastating impact on human health, causing nutritional borne diseases such as cancer, diabetes and obesity.

The week´s program includes vegan breakfast, lunch and dinner, different talks, sightseeing tours, international music and singing in the evening, and mingle with other vegans, and much more – see the program below.
