Firstly, thank you ...
Thanks to everyone's great support of the launch of Australian Vegans Journal last year, we are back with volume two! Yay! We cannot express enough our gratitude for the amazing support for volume one. We've SOLD OUT and are now ready to sell volume two. Read on to see what volume two will include...
What is Australian Vegans Journal?
In case you missed the memo last year, here is a brief overview of what we are doing: Australian Vegans Journal is an independent, ethical vegan publication with articles written by vegans from across Australia.
It's about ideas.
How we can collaborate to accelerate the progress of veganism.
The ways we can be more effective, smarter and more strategic, in order to reach the hearts and minds of people.
It's the thinking vegan's journal.
It's the pioneering vegan's journal.
Together we have created a journal that informs, inspires and supports vegans and those looking into adopting veganism.
Contents of Volume Two
Volume two of Australian Vegans Journal is a very special, powerful collection of articles and images from a diverse cross-section of the Australian vegan community. We are absolutely thrilled to have Ashley Avci as our cover ambassador for this volume as she is a highly effective, passionate animal activist as well as a highly intelligent ethical leader. She emodies the values and qualities we seek to share with the world through Australian Vegans Journal, and so couldn't be happier that she said "yes" to the cover and the interview we did with her! We hope you enjoy reading her inspiring words too.
Here is the complete contents of AVJ vol. 2:
