The second VivaBiH Fest – say YES to veganism

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).
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.

Online campaign “The dark side of milk chocolate”

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.

The “Za život” campaign made us question our beliefs

Our campaign called “Za život” (For Life) appeared on the 5th of July in six cities – Sarajevo, Banja Luka, Tuzla, Mostar, Zenica and Prijedor.

At a total of 14 locations, you could see billboards and city lights with the slogan “Njihov zivot je u tvojim rukama” (Their life is in your hands). The campaign was also shown on displays in 12 buses in Sarajevo and Banja Luka.

Thank you Vildana for the design and marketing that changed veganism in Bosnia and Herzegovina

“Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.” – Dr. Seuss

In the sea of daily obligations, we often forget how fast we have grown as an organization and what we have been through in the past three years.

Vildana Hrnjić is one of the people who has been part of our team since the summer of 2020 and has contributed a lot to VivaBiH with her ideas and work.

Unfortunately, Vildana stops working in our organization in order to devote herself to her other international projects and entrepreneurial ventures.

“Horror’s of KFC-a” – the reality behind the famous brand!

At the beginning of March, to be precise 03/02/2023. in Sarajevo, a campaign called “The Horrors of KFC” appeared in trams.

This is one of our smaller campaigns, and it was inspired by the recent opening of KFC in Sarajevo.

The global brand KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken) is known for preparing chicken meat. Although we are far from Kentucky, this famous brand recently opened its premises in Sarajevo.

Ovo je jedna naša manja kampanja, a inspirisana je nedavnim otvaranjem KFC lokacija u Sarajevu. 

Svjetski brend KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken) je poznat po spremanju pilećeg mesa. Iako smo daleko od Kentuckyja, ovaj poznati brend je nedavno otvorio svoje prostore u Sarajevu.

“Let us choose compassion” because it is the solution!

On Saturday, February 18th, 2023, VivaBiH together with its activist group did another performance on the streets of Sarajevo called “Let’s Choose Compassion”.

The best way to help animals is to get out of our comfort zone, go to the streets and give our voice to those who cannot defend themselves and whose voice has been unfairly taken away.

The individuals on your plate – Can you look your food in the eyes?

At the end of September, 24.09.2022. in the afternoon in Sarajevo in front of the Eternal Flame, the VivaBiH activist group held the action “Individuals on your plates”.

The main banner of this action with the question “Did your food have the same eye color as you?” and “Let’s stop speciesism!” has attracted a lot of attention from our fellow citizens.

The question alone made them think, and many showed interest in finding out what speciesism is.

We actually wanted to encourage people to re-establish that connection between what is on their plate and that individual who wanted to be carefree, happy and who wanted to live. We also wanted to bring the concept of speciesism closer to people.

This is why we shouldn’t drink animal milk

When you buy a product, do you think about its origin and harm to us, the animals and nature?

For the sake of profit, the dairy industry with its dairies and farms destroys everything and everyone in its path.

Did you know that the consumption of animal milk is quite young compared to the existence of the human species?

Compared to the 300,000-year history of our species, drinking animal milk is definitely a new habit. Based on the teeth, historians have learned that the practice of drinking animal milk among humans began only 6,000-10,000 years ago.

New tastes and discoveries in “Summer taste of compassion”

While celebrating World Plant Milk Day, on Saturday 20.08.22. we organized a gathering called “Summer taste of compassion”.The event was planned and executed within our campaign “Truths about Milk” with the goal of educating the public on why we shouldn’t be consuming cow’s milk and other animals’ milk. Even though we were surprised by the thunder and rain, the atmosphere in Bistro Zdravo (the restaurant where the event was held) was amazing. We watched the documentary “Cowspiracy” which tackles different ecological problems like climate change, water usage, deforestation and ocean dead zones, and comes to the conclusion that animal agriculture, including the dairy industry, is the leading cause of environmental destruction. After the movie, our guests had the opportunity to hear 3 interesting educational presentations.
