Great success of the Vegetarian Week 2009

The Vegetarian Week 2009 was definitely a great success, to continue and repeat in the coming years. Activities were promoted by tens of organisations in 12 different countries: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brasil, Canada, France, Italy, Portugal, Romania, Spain and USA.

The organisations involved appreciate the efforts of all the volunteers that contributed their valuable time and helped making this week a special one. A special thank also to our patron, author John Robbins, for his support and contribution to the success of this initiative.

Some selected pictures are shown below. If you also have any pictures to share, please contact us.
