Veganuary 2018 is taking off in China!
As the vegan movement in China develops, we have seen so many more vegan themed events happening across the country, especially in big cities like Beijing and Shanghai. Because of the popularity of these vegan events, more and more people are made aware of the benefits of a vegan lifestyle and are interested in trying it out.
is growing more popular in China
Since 2015, various groups in Hong Kong and mainland China have promoted the campaign and the number of people taking part has been growing gradually each year. In 2016, almost 1,000 signups have been recorded by a local independent effort.
In the summer of 2016, TACN became the official campaign partner to promote Veganuary in mainland China. Throughout 2016 and this year (2017), with the help from our official project partner ThinkCloud (Beijing), our team has executed many vegan outreach events promoting different international organisations and their campaigns, including Veganuary. In November, we have extended our reach to the biggest cosmopolitan city of China – Shanghai, we’re working with local vegan groups to grow the outreach efforts in and around the city.
