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.
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.
On Friday, 21.07.2023. VivaBiH activists took to the streets of Sarajevo and in front of the Eternal Fire gave a voice to the voiceless.
The street performance called “RECITE NE TESTIRANJU” (eng. „Say no to testing“) which was held in the afternoon attracted a lot of attention from passers-by.
On Thursday, 01.06.2023, our event called “U susret ljetu” (eng. Looking forward to the Summer) was successfully organized at Bistru Zdravo restaurant.
Summer is approaching and we are all looking forward to warm summer days, vacations and the sea!
This summer get-together had the primary goal of reminding people of the great role of the oceans and the seas in our daily lives, and to inform them about the negative human impact on this sensitive ecosystem.

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.
On Saturday, April 29, 2023. VivaBiH activists went to the streets of Sarajevo and in front of the Eternal Fire gave again a voice to those who do not have one.
The street action called “Blind to Injustice”, which took place in the afternoon, attracted a lot of attention from citizens.
The goal of this performance was to show the truth behind meat and animal products.
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.
VivaBiH as an organization works to raise public awareness of today’s problems, with a focus on their solutions.
In addition to the campaigns that we did on milk, honey, water and air, it was time to make a campaign for soil.
Land or soil is what is also around us and without which we cannot live, just like water and air, and the goal of this campaign was to awaken a more conscious relationship between man and the soil, because the current relationship is not sustainable at all.
Soil is a living ecosystem consisting of minerals, organic matter, air, water and living organisms. This wealth of biodiversity plays a key role in regulating, storing and filtering water.
