Support the Vegan Society Luxembourg

Your help is urgently needed! You can support the VSL in many ways. Be it through donations, membership or active assistance. Thus, we can regularly attend events and organize various events; be it Stammtisch or bigger events like the traditional brunch.

The more members the better

The more members an organization has, the more say it gets from the political and business community.

Through your annual contribution, we can organize campaigns, print flyers and lobbying.

Political partners

Together we are strong! Therefore, the Vegan Society Luxembourg attaches great importance to international cooperation with other organizations and platforms.

Cerealkiller

Biofuels or agrofuels are among the most controversial instruments of European climate and energy policy. By 2020, EU Member States should cover almost 10% of total energy consumption in the transport sector by adding agro-fuels to diesel and gasoline. Measured in terms of total energy consumption in Luxembourg, the Luxembourg government wants to cover around half of its renewable energy target by using agrofuels by 2020. However, agrofuels are not a sustainable solution to our climate and energy problems.

Meng Landwirtschaft

The Non-Governmental Organizations in the platform “Meng Agriculture” call for a reorientation of the Luxembourg agricultural policy.

“Meng Agriculture” calls on the Luxembourg government, as part of the preparation of the “Plan de développement rural”, to maximize the scope that the EU agricultural policy offers for “greening” agriculture. In addition, the organizations are calling for the development of a strategy to implement both environmentally and economically sustainable agricultural policies in the medium to long term. For “Meng Agriculture”, a sustainable overall concept primarily benefits the interests of farmers. At the same time, the government must ensure coherence across all policies in order to prevent negative consequences, especially for smallholder populations in developing countries.
