VinE (Veganism in Education)

Image

VinE is a recently founded educational initiative in schools that seeks to encourage the teaching of empathy from a vegan perspective. The vegan way of life has widely recognised benefits for the planet, human health and social justice as well as being an active expression of compassion towards all sentient beings with whom we share the earth. Our aim is to provide children and young people with the knowledge and skills to critically think about the way we define and use animals and inter-related health, social justice and environmental issues. This teaching will enable them to develop their own moral values and flourish as empathetic and ethically responsible citizens. We will create and recommend materials for teachers concerned with encouraging empathy, compassion, good health and sustainable choice making in their students. One of our primary objectives is to secure a place for the study of veganism as a religious and non-religious belief in religious education. There is value and purpose in extending the Golden Rule rule to embrace all animals for in Schweitzer's own words ' 'Until we extend our circle of compassion to all living beings, humanity will not find peace.'
