36th World Vegetarian Congress
For a vegetarian world. For the people. For the animals. For the planet.

For the first time in Latin America.
Since the first one in 1908, World Vegetarian Congresses have taken place in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and North America. And in 2004 it will happen for the fist time in Latin America. You cannot miss it.

This world meeting of vegetarians is promoted by the International Vegetarian Union together with the Brazilian Vegetarian Society. Florianópolis will host lecturers, researchers and supporters from all over the world, followers of this nutritional alternative, already widely accepted in Brazil. More and more people are aware that vegetarianism is not only a healthy choice, but also an excellent means of safeguarding natural resources, avoiding deforestation and the contamination of the environment. Besides all these benefits, it also protects the animals, our companions on this planet.

On one of the most beautiful beaches of Santa Catarina Island:

· Conferences, workshops and seminars with speakers from all over the world.
· Vegetarian nutrition and cooking classes.
· Meat-centered dietary impact on human, animal and environmental health.
· Ethical, religious and philosophical foundations of vegetarianism.
· Cruelty-free products, clothing, accessories and cosmetics fair.
· Vegetarian luau.
· Shows.

Plenty of information, culture and naturally mouth-watering 100% vegetarian (vegan) dishes.

Everyone is invited: experienced vegetarians, beginners, sympathizers, and those who wish to learn more about the subject.
