Have you noticed a group of vegans in Banja Luka last week?

As you probably know, we organized a vegan weekend in Banja Luka for the first time last week!

Our activities began at 6:30pm at the Music Pavilion Banja Luka with the screening of “The Game Changers”, a documentary film. We were super happy for the fact that the hall was full and at some point we ran out of chairs.

After the film screening, we exchanged our experiences and answered people’s questions. The Q&A session ended with a selfie with the participants, and then we continued the hangout over some delicious vegan food from a local restaurant.

If you follow our work, you might have seen what the Cube of Truth performance is (Anonymous for the Voiceless Cube of Truth)

In short, it is an activist performance which includes standing while holding a screen showing standard procedures of animal exploitation in the food industry as well as talking to the interested passersby.

This Saturday we organized the first Cube of Truth in Banja Luka, where we were again surprised by a majority of positive reactions of the people watching the performance.

We would like to thank the kind staff at the Music Pavilion, as well as everyone who participated in our activities. Special thanks to our volunteers who helped us organize this! See you soon in other cities!



This year's VivaBiH Fest will be held on November 4th and 5th at Hotel Holiday in Sarajevo, under the slogan "Reci DA veganstvu" (Say YES to veganism). WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT AT THE FESTIVAL? Just like last year, you can expect great educational workshops and panel discussions, vegan food exhibitors and a music and entertainment program, and like last year, the entrance will be FREE.

On Tuesday, August 22, 2023 we celebrated World Plant Milk Day! This day marks the growing popularity of plant-based alternatives to animal milk, and raises awareness of their many health benefits, as well as the benefits for animals and the environment. We celebrated this very important day in the building of Goethe-Institut in Sarajevo on the 22th of August. The workshop was called "Nauči praviti biljna mlijeka uz Vladu" (Learn how to make plant milk with Vlado). Our participants had the opportunity to learn everything about plant-based milk from experts in this field, from production to use!

In order to bring a well-known product closer to the public, but through the prism of truth and without additional decoration and filters, VivaBiH launched a small online campaign on 07.07.2023, called "Tamna strana mliječne čokolade" (The dark side of milk chocolate). The campaign consisted of a one-minute video and several social media posts.
