The 14th consecutive ZEGEVEGE festival of sustainable living will be held on Friday, September 23rd and Saturday, September 24th, 2022, at Ban Jelačić Square. In addition to substantial educational and entertainment programs, this year Zagreb’s main square will also tempt passers-by for two full days with a variety of exhibitors’ offerings of exclusively plant-based healthy food, eco-products and cosmetics that are not tested on animals. The enticing aromas of ready-made meals will spread from the stands of various restaurants, and there will be something for every visitor – both for lovers of delicious stews and spoon dishes, as well as those who mainly look forward to fast food.
Thousands of visitors are expected again, and amongst variety of information available at the ZeGeVege festival, the most noticeable ones will be those about the many benefits of veganism for their own health, animals and the entire planet. Everyone will be able to visit the interesting installation and take photos next to the six-meter three-dimensional sign of the nutrition of the future, but also learn a lot from the educational panels placed on two-meter poles. They will be able to hear about veganism first-hand from experts and people whose lives were changed for the better by this diet.
The organizers, Animal Friends Croatia, are looking forward to the 14th vegan festival in a row, sponsored by the City of Zagreb and whose organization is of non-profit and educational nature. As they point out, ZeGeVege festival is noted for years now as a place of great energy and positive changes: „We invite everyone to feast with us and fill up on plant-based fuel, learn about animal rights and veganism, enjoy the positive environment and celebrate the sustainable lifestyle. As in previous years, we are preparing handful of interesting things and surprises for all age groups. See you there!”
The ZeGeVege festival, due to its green policy, is a huge contribution to the creation of a sustainable and healthier society and as such an extremely important event, which both Zagreb and Croatia can be proud of. Through a tasty and healthy offer as well as through vast educational program, visitors learn firsthand about reducing the consumption of natural resources, reducing environmental pollution and their own carbon footprint and preventing the climate change, which comes as an imperative with a vegan lifestyle. Exhibitors presenting their products recognized the need to increase the offer of plant-based products on the Croatian market. ZeGeVege festival, where only plant-based foods can be exhibited, is an opportunity to show how much vegan movement has grown in Croatia and how substantial and accessible the offer of such food and other products is.
