Vegan weekend in Mostar

Project News

Slowly but surely, our Vegan Weekend is going around the whole Bosnia and Herzegovina. Last time, we held our activities in Mostar for the first time.

On Friday we gathered at 19:00 PM at the Youth Cultural Center Abrašević (OKC Abrašević), where we hosted the ‘Game Changers’ film screening, after which the attendees tasted vegan food from Tecó, a local gastropub.

During the hangout, over some delicious food, we talked with the attendees about vegan principles and our reasons for choosing a vegan lifestyle. 👌

The following day, we organized the Anonymous for the Voiceless ‘Cube of Truth performance.

‘Cube of Truth’ is an activist performance at which activists go out and stand in the busiest part of a city, form a square, and show graphic images of the standard procedures of animal exploitation in various industries (mainly the food industry) on their monitors and laptops. During the performance, there is also a number of activists who stand next to the ‘cube’ and talk to interested passersby.

Even though we generally were met with positive reactions in every city we went to, we must emphasize that, in Mostar, they were the most positive so far. Thanks to all who showed up for your interest and kindness!

Big thanks to the kind staff at OKC Abrašević and Tecó gastropub, as well as to everyone who attended the film screening and/or the performance. Special thanks to our volunteers who helped us with the organization.

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.
