How to navigate everyday relationships as vegans and animal rights advocates
Thrive Vegan World is a UK-based podcast hosted by Wendy McGovern exploring how we build the vegan world we want to see, one plant-based brick at a time. It’s all about empowering individuals to live their best life and be the inspiration for others and build a strong, supportive community. Their mission is to progress towards a world where non-human animals' rights to an autonomous life are fully acknowledged and respected.
In this interview, Wendy McGovern and Clare Mann, discuss how as vegans and animal advocates we can improve all our relationships including: -
- The one with ourselves - the importance of self care and community.
- With our fellow animals - how to relate more respectfully, and why 'love' may. not be the best focus of our advocacy.
- With other vegans - discoursing on difficult issues without the toxicity that is rife on social media.
- With non-vegans - being effective advocates and finding empathy for those we see as complicit in the oppression we stand against.
