Giving voice to a vegan community through graphical messages: Jacky Wasserman (US)

“As a vegan seeing how the movement and community has grown over the past 5 years has been so inspiring. I love hearing from friends that want my advice to go vegan because they saw a documentary or heard about how much the environment is affected or they love animals too much. Helping people transition and just being me without really doing anything but leading by example has been the most effective thing I think.
As an entrepreneur, creating a community of badass women boss babes that collaborate and support each other has been so rewarding. Cultivating and creating relationships with other business owners is a must. We all can relate!”

Being a loud advocate for green values: Outi Pyy (FI)

“I am not just an activist, I am also a teacher. I teach about economic and environmental responsibilities and ways to better your everyday life. I see that there are many good people in the world (and Finland) who want to do good, but they lack the knowledge to do it. So I help them out with my lectures, talks and my blog. If I get them to understand the effects of their actions and that they have a choice, I have done my job. Most of this work, by the way, is something I do on voluntary basis. I do it out of responsibility.”
