Tina Fox
Monday, plenary session - 4.30pm - 6.15pm : sowing seeds for a vegetarian future

Just a few words to introduce myself. My name is Tina Fox and I am currently membership secretary for the IVU, having been elected to Council in January 1999 at Chiang Mai. I find this very rewarding although hard work at times. I am particularly interested in helping those Societies in countries were the vegetarian movement is not well established and they have few resources. As I enjoy travel I also know first hand just how frustrating it can be to find vegetarian food in an unsympathetic country.

I consider myself very fortunate in that I am actually employed, as Chief Executive, by the world's oldest and most established Society, the Vegetarian Society of the UK. Prior to this my work was in local government but my interests were always in the animal welfare and green movements. I wrote the UK Green Party's policy on animal rights and have been a contact for most of the UK's animal rights groups at one time or another. When time permits my interests also include gardening, reading and house restoration!
