The veg*n meetup is social group for vegans, veggies and vegan curious/ friendly, living on or visiting the island of Mallorca. Come and meet with like minded folk, eat, drink and generally be merry! It is run by me, Nicole. I am a British vegan and teacher and after leaving the UK, where there are plenty of social groups for vegans and veggies I wanted to create something similar here. I have been delighted to see many friendships blossom through the group and look forward to creating many more!
Joining is completely free and you are not obliged to come to any events, although we would love you to!
What does Veg*n mean?
Veg*n is used to refer to a group of people that includes both vegetarians and vegans.
Do I have to be veg*n to join?
No. However, while we welcome non vegan members, we always arrange meetups in vegan friendly places and strongly encourage you to take this opportunity to try vegan options. Please do not eat meat or fish at our events as this will result in you being removed from the group.
Are you associated with any businesses?
Absolutely not, this group is not for profit and all fees are paid by the organizer. We do however encourage and support the various vegan restaurants and shops around the island. We are NOT, and nor will we ever be, associated with 'Mallorca Vegan.'
See this page from the vegan society Why go vegan?
Does it cost anything to join?
No, it's completely free to join and is run on a voluntary basis
Can I suggest an event?
Absolutely! Just email the organizer, Nicole and if the event is suitable and does not clash with another,it will be added to the calendar.
Are there any rules?
Just a few for the benefit of the group and it's members. For example...Please bring vegan food only to events such as pot luck and never eat non vegetarian food at events.
For events where there are a limited number of places, please don't say you're going, unless you're actually going. Then please keep your RSVP up to date.
If you advertise a meetup else where, please make it clear that this is a Mallorca Veg*n Meetup event, include a link in your post and encourage RSVPs.
Please ensure that your posts (and comments) are relevant to the group (or event,) civil and in English... and please don't spam other members (via event comments. message boards, email...)
While we have Spanish, German and Russian speakers in the group, the common language is English. You will hear Spanish spoken at events but in the interests of ensuring no one is 'left out,' please use English in groups or when posting.
You are welcome to bring non veg*n friends to events (please +1 RSVP) However, please make sure they understand the nature of the group and are sensitive to the fact that many members see this as an opportunity not to be interrogated or teased about their lifestyle choices.
Breaches of these rules may result in your temporary or permanent removal, with or without a warning.
OK, how do I join?
Just click "Join Us" at the top right, and follow the instructions. It is preferable that you add a photo too, so that members can recognise one another at events.
