ARZone Podcast 51: Greg McFarlane - Vegan Australia

Episode 51 features special guest Greg McFarlane.  

Greg McFarlane is the president of the Vegan Society of New South Wales, a community-based, non-profit organisation founded in 1981 in Southeastern Australia.

In this ARZone Podcast, Greg talks about the challenges of creating a national advocacy organization, the core influences that affect the "life cycle of a vegan", single-issue campaigns, his pragmatic approach to outreach, and much more. Audio podcast, approx 56 minutes.

The Vegan Society aims to promote veganism by encouraging the use of alternatives to all products derived wholly or partly from other animals. The Society emphasizes education, both about the rights of other animals, as well as the health and environmental benefits of veganism. In addition to his day-to-day responsibilities as president, Greg is focusing now on building a new and highly visible national vegan organization throughout Australia, scheduled to launch before the end of 2012.
