Why killing animals is killing us
Learn more about environmental arguments for advocating veganism
Maximilian Weiss, Tim Werner

As animal rights activists, we tend to focus on the ethical reasons for going vegan – because it's the most important and sustainable reason - but people sometimes are deaf and blind to ethical arguments. It can be helpful to present further reasons for adopting a plant-based lifestyle, like information about impacts on our health and/or our environment. In our presentation, we will give you some interesting facts about the impacts of animal agriculture on the different Planetary Boundaries, which can be valuable additional arguments for advocating veganism/plant-based lifestyles. In the following Q&A session, we are happy to clarify open questions and go into details, for example, answering questions on environmental details you were asked before and had no answer for.
