The Vegetarian Vegan Society of Queensland (VVSQ) is a non-profit organisation, established in 1990 (incorporated in 1994) that aims to support and connect people who want to lead a more compassionate way of life.
We encourage veganism as a healthy, humane, and environmentally responsible lifestyle, and offer support to vegans, vegetarians, veg-curious, and our allies who support the lifestyle and our goals. We believe that a plant-based diet and vegan/vegetarian lifestyle is Vital for our health, our planet, and our animal friends. In fact, we have a twice a year magazine promoting these things!
We hope with our events and outreach, to create a vibrant and effective veg community - throughout ALL of Queensland (not just the cities) - and together with YOU we will be able to make this world a better place for all, including our animal friends.
VVSQ 2.0 is starting to germinate, with a new committee on board (as of November 2016), new members, and new ideas being put forth for where Queensland veg people would like to see VVSQ in the future, and how they can get involved to make it happen.
