The Vegan Organic Network (VON) is an educational charity established 1996 and the only organisation in the UK solely working for food to be grown the veganic way.
VON is launching a new worldwide competition to create awareness that 60% of mammals are farmed animals, 36% are humans and 4% are wildlife, while 70% are farmed chickens and other farmed birds, while 30% are wild birds.
VON advocate that by adopting a plant-based food system, land used by farm animals can be converted to wildlife habitats.
Dan Graham of VON said: "The VON competition is also about giving environmentalists a voice and share the message that urgent action is needed to save our wildlife in peril, preserve biodiversity, protect the environment and encourage healthy horticulture and agriculture.
"It is now widely accepted that we are in the Earth's sixth mass extinction event where species of both flora and fauna are disappearing at a rate never seen before.
"We are looking for some real proactive thinking, encouraging entrants to get creative and come up with some exciting and innovative artwork and videos and send them in to us so we can together raise awareness."
Followers of the methodology used by VON do not use animal manures, chemical fertilisers or agrochemicals when growing their fruit and vegetables.
There are two competitions: Video Competition open to the general public, with a top prize of £500. A Schools and Youth Arts Competition with prizes plus free gifts for the first 150 entries. The closing date is midnight 1 November 2021. https://veganorganic.net/2021/01/video-competition/
