Vegan ACT (formerly The ACT Vegan and Vegetarian Society) is a not-for-profit, community group that promotes a vegan lifestyle within Australia and particularly the ACT. The Society welcomes: vegans, vegetarians, and other people who are wishing to learn about and live a compassionate lifestyle.

The Society organises and attends community and social events, and publishes material to help people understand and see how easy a vegan lifestyle can be.

The aims of the society are to:

(a) promote a wholly plant-based diet which excludes, all food derived from members of the animal kingdom;

(b) promote a lifestyle that causes the least possible suffering to animals and the ideal of a healthy, ethical and humane mode of life;

(c) encourage and facilitate co-operation between vegans and vegetarians throughout the world;

(d) co-operate with other organisations and people concerned with sound nutrition, positive approaches to physical and mental health, the preservation and improvement of the environment and the prevention of cruelty to members of the animal kingdom;


(e) facilitate the supply of vegan food;

(f) promote the use and development of animal-free alternatives for food, clothing and other purposes, for the benefit of humans, non-human animals and the environment.

The society believes that a wholly plant-based vegan diet:

  • is more conducive to health
  • is more humane
  • is fundamental to resolving the world food problem
  • creates far fewer demands on the environment
