Vegilicious will be hosting a talk by Philip Wollen, former Vice President of Citibank and founder of the Kindness Trust, entitled “Ethics, Peace & Occam’s Razor: Veganism – the new Swiss Army Knife” on Wed 9 March, 6 for 6.30pm in the ChemEng Seminar Room. Fee is R20 – vegan refreshments will be provided.
For catering purposes, RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org
In his talk, Philip Wollen takes you briefly on his private journey from the corporate world to kindness in action; from the world of lobsters and Lear jets to shelters and slaughterhouses. Like Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors without Borders) his initiative, “Kindness Sans Frontières” also crosses the borders of nations, religions, and politics. But he also crosses the bloodiest border of all, the “Border of Species”. He then explores the intersection of faith, literature, ethics, and solving the grave problems that beset us. . . . threats to Peace, to the Environment, to our Economies, Human Health and ultimately and most importantly, to our Consciences. He presents a powerful case for the Vegan Imperative”.
