Environmental Activists hold “Open Day” in Belarus for Ecological Education and Awareness

Like us on Facebook:

Minsk, the capital city of Belarus, isn’t what we typically think of when we think about the next eco and vegan friendly hotspot, but one young group of activists seeks to change that. At the IMAGURU Startup Hub in Minsk, different eco-activist groups gathered for a series of workshops, teach-ins, and showcases about some of the important work they were doing, transforming the building into what they called an “Environmental Activist School” for their “Open Day” to attract future members and funding. The event was organized by Green Network, an organizing group in Belarus who are working to bring ecological issues to the forefront of national discussion and developing a larger green movement.

The group recently travelled to Paris for the International Climate Conference, representing their country and helping to lead a climate campaign.

The day was full of hands on activities. Journalist Khristina Charnyauskaya prepared her own “eco-quiz,” where winners were able to try her hand prepared vegan sandwiches, made out of hummus, tomato, and arugula. “Khristina says that it’s quite easy to be a vegan in Belarus. Many cafes are absolutely ok with the requests not to put sour cream in soup, and every central market has vegetarian products,” reported Euro Belarus, a news outlet working out of the country.

Time to book a flight and test out her statement!

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
