In a world of big ideas, and even bigger issues, in a world of those who are lost and those just found, right in that world the only thing that matters are acts, because they are here to be an aureole in all words, to keep flutter like a flag in spite of those who want us to shut up.
But why should we, why when we are doing the right thing, when we are fighting for others, for those who do not speak but still feel.

Current global food system requires global solution, because it affects humans, animals and Earth.

“When unified voices unite for a common purpose, they are creating a history ” – Gloria Steinem.

Social Media Fellowship program from Sentient Media has united over 100 individuals from 12 countries to educate, support and inspire the next generation of animal and environmental advocates on social media.

During the month of September, Sentient Media will carry out a 30-day campaign in order to educate the international public about the lack of our current global food system.

Among these 10 Fellows of the Social Media Fellowship program are our Ajdin Arnautovic and Vildana Hrnjic too, and a few others who are our volunteers. They have completed the training within six weeks in order to be able to shape and present topics on social media, like injustice in the food system.

Sentient Media’s Fellowship program is a project financed by VegFund, and during the duration of the program, Vildana and Ajdin have had an opportunity to share ideas, knowledge but previous experiences on animal advocacy too.

Ajdin and Vildana have prepared a campaign that will be a part of a global campaign, and during the month of September, it will be published and presented.

Their campaign is linked to the milk industry, and why consuming cow milk is not only harmful to animals, but for humans and the environment too.

We are very proud of our members who have obliged during their campaign, and we are thrilled to be able to share it with you, very soon.

More about the program of Sentient Media Fellowship and participation of Ajdin and Vildana you can find and read on, and on the official Newsletter 100 Voices.

Participation in such a project is vastly important for the vegan association of Bosnia and Herzegovina, especially because they will be our change-makers, which we all stand for.



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.
