This group is for anyone who is interested in a vegan lifestyle, its purpose, and its values. We warmly welcome plant-curious omnivores, vegetarians and vegans alike.
Our potlucks in Zurich, Switzerland are a fun and inviting space to taste a huge selection of vegan dishes and spend a casual evening in the company of people from around the world. We share a big enthusiasm for great food and interest for a lifestyle that's good for your health, and kind to animals and the planet. Every now and then, we invite a guest speaker to present his expertise in the above-mention field or organisation.
For events taking place at our place, we welcome members' children aged 12+. There is no age limit for field trips or excursions.
The group's organizers are Roland and Caroline, a couple that turned vegan in early 2014. Roland is a medical doctor. He has met in person with acclaimed doctors and researchers specialised in plant-based nutrition, including Prof. T Colin Campbell, author of the acclaimed book "The China Study", Dr. Neal Barnard from the PCRM in Washington DC, and Dr. Michael Greger from nutritionfacts.org. During the potlucks, Roland is happy to answer any questions you may have about the relationship between food and health.
Members of this group can also join our Facebook group page (look for "Eat Positive"). There's so much to learn from each other and share.
