James Aspey has gone from beating leukemia as a teen to being one of Australia’s leading vegan activists. Initially going vegetarian for a 7 day experiment, James then learnt about the health, ethical and environmental issues surrounding animal consumption, and has been vegan ever since. Grabbing global attention in 2015 after breaking a 365 day vow of silence with a powerful vegan message in a TV interview seen by millions, James has continued devoting himself to activism. In 2016 he was tattooed for 24 hours straight to raise money for 3 charities. He travels all around the world giving free speeches on animal rights and veganism. His speech has gone viral and been viewed over 6 million times. James also makes YouTube videos and encourages an educational, encouraging and inspiring approach to activism. We’re delighted to host James in his 1st visit to Ireland.
