1st Latin-America Congress, 2006 - Sao Paulo, Brazil

From August 4th to 8th 2006, the Latin American Vegetarian Union - UVLA and the Brazilian Vegetarian Society - SVB held the 1st Brazilian and Latin American Vegetarian Congress at Latin America Memorial, one of the seeing sights of Sao Paulo city. The motto of the congress was “Peace for all Beings: for a  Healthy, Sustainable and Compassionate World”.

The object of the Congress was to show that much more than a healthy diet, vegetarianism is a crucial element for the construction of a more balanced society, without hunger and without violence, a society that promotes peace and compassion within and among species, preserving the environment.

The 1st Brazilian and Latin American Vegetarian Congress was successful: a landmark in the consolidation of the vegetarian movement in our country. For that, it was crucial the support we had from several people, organizations and companies. Our event had more than 60 lectures representing several aspects vegetarianism: ethics and philosophy, Animal Rights, health, environmental impact, beliefs and religion. All lecturers were volunteers, bearing their own travel and hotel expenses, without receiving any remuneration.
