Alexa Gnauck

After watching a pig being led into the butcher shop in her hometown she decided to go vegetarian with 3 years. Against all odds – family, friends, kindergarten carers, doctors – she followed her moral compass. This integrity that children and adolescents are capable of and their deeply rooted connection to animals is what fascinates her. Taking that fascination into her activism, she worked on the educational outreach program of Greenpeace for a year. Seeking a stronger animal-rights focus, the journey took her to a project called Plant-Powered Pupils. After 6-months of organizing plant-based cooking workshops in schools she is now coordinating the international ProVeg School Program.

This program focuses on creating a veg-friendly environment for children to grow up in by expanding the offer of plant-based options in schools. Her work includes a deep analysis of how different countries operate, different approaches to go with and how to best reach out to all stakeholders. Additionally, she`s building the Early Intervention Network as a global platform to support the movement.
