HEATHER GIVES AN EXHILARATING KEYNOTE SPEECH TO OVER 2000 PEOPLE
Vegan Camp Out returned this August 2018 for another successful festival.
Vegan Camp Out, who are partnered with Viva is the UK’s largest vegan camp out, this year sporting an impressive line-up of speakers, activist workshops, yoga and fitness classes, plus a huge array of plant based food options throughout the 2 day festival.
Heather was invited by Jordan Martin the organiser, to open the festival with a keynote speech on Friday 18th September.
At 8.45pm Heather took to the stage with a crowd of over 2000 jostling for a space in the main hanger at the Nottingham Show ground.
Heather’s inspiring hour long speech covered many topics that are prevalent amongst today’s ever growing vegan society, such as the current dairy industry problem and its 3 billion cost to subsidise them from we the taxpayer to transitioning to living a plant based lifestyle, as well as activism and nutrition.
But the main message was working with the opposition and problem-solving by making the farmers self-sufficient and not a burden to the taxpayer by changing the dairy industry to grow pea protein and crops instead. Heather's company VBites can buy and utilise in the millions of tons.
Heather focusing heavily on offering solutions said:
“Instead of working against the meat and dairy industry look at offering ideas to work with them to offer solutions to stop their harm”
After the speech many attendees came up to Heather to express their motivation as to how they had been inspired to actually go out and make a difference.
Here is a brief resume of some of their social media reports:
“We need more people in the world like her. Woohoo”
“Great talk Heather! Bold and full of humour. Hopefully see you next year"
“Thank you for all that you do. It was so great to meet you and thank you in person"
“You inspire me to change”
Jordan, the organiser said:
“Thank you to everyone for being part of an event that's going to be remembered for a long time to come!"
