VEGAN IFTAR EVENING IN HELSINKI
Veganism and the fasting practice of Ramadan, is it a two-fold challenge or opportunity?
In this unique evening, we will get a bit of awareness on Veganism from Viral Vegans, as well as fasting practice (Ramadan) from Finnish Intercultural Community (SKY) members, by actually breaking the fast, with delicious vegan food!
On one hand, Viral Vegans want to mainstream veganism & animal rights. Their aim is to show that powerful change can begin with what’s on our plate. On another hand, fasting in Ramadan teaches a lot about self-discipline, empathy, and developing spirituality. As we reflect during the month of Ramadan, we believe that having a vegan meal as iftar can contribute to our awareness!
Your hosts will be Viral Vegans and SKY, where, after some provocative knowledge sharing, vegan-iftar is served, followed by mingling and exchanging opinions.

As we reflect during the month of Ramadan, we thought that having a vegan meal as iftar can contribute to our awareness! We collaborated with Viral Vegans for a very unique evening! While we gained awareness of veganism we also learned about the fasting practice. In the end, we all enjoyed the delicious vegan food and the fruitful conversations around the tables.
