There are also three very interesting presentations in the Welcome Session:
1. Peter Hübner, animal rights activist and trained butcher who turned vegan and started the campaign “Butchers against animal murder” (from 3:00)
2. Benjamin Bodirsky, senior scientist at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research focussing on the large-scale and long-term transformations of the global food system (from 14:10)
3. Stephanie Wunder, senior fellow and coordinator for Land Use Policy & Coordinator Food Systems at the Ecologic Institute in Berlin (from 35:20)
Particularly Stephanie Wunder gives a great overview of the transformation potential which is inherent to niches or as she puts it “pioneers of change”. This perfectly applies to the niche of veganic / biocyclic vegan agriculture.
