Perspectives

There is a global trend away from the "traditional vegetarian" view/believes towards a more Open society also in terms of the global development and progress in sustainability where vegetarians and even more vegans can become a role model for the next chapter in modern human history, which should be able to use our "brains together" and advocate for a better society for the future.
