This week Mariann talks to Grace Han from TACN (tacn.org) and Plant Based News about the growth and development of veganism in China and across the Greater China region, her tips on being vegan in China, and what roles tech and design are playing in advancing the vegan movement.
Grace Han is the Founder and Managing Director of UK charity TACN (tacn.org) and Regional Development Manager for Plant Based News. Grace got involved with charitable works for animals at a young age. Her dedication to the cause is driven by the vision of a compassionate society. Since 2012 Grace has helped, mentored and provided training to many local animal welfare groups and contributed to many campaigns that promote a cruelty-free and vegan lifestyle.
In the intro to the show, Jasmin and Mariann talk about Jasmin’s recent trip to New York, their talk at Main Street Vegan Academy, Jasmin’s joy over how easy it is to find vegan food in New York, and the new vegan options at Disney World! Later in the episode, Mariann brings us Rising Anxieties about “McHypocrisy” from Extinction Rebellion, reducetarianism, and more!
