Through its political work, ProVeg advocates for the potential of plant-based foods and lifestyles as an effective approach to tackling a variety of critical issues such as animal welfare, environmental protection, and resource conservation. ProVeg intends to target key institutions like the European Union and bodies of the United Nations to influence the decision making process. Through open letters addressed to relevant decision makers, we start conversations by pointing out insufficient actions and offer our support to shape policies.
