This course will focus on animal advocacy, ethics, and veganism. We will delve deep into the multiple reasons to live vegan and how a Jain ethic parallels with animal protection. The course is designed for Jains who want to learn more about veganism and for vegans and pre-vegans who are interested in learning more about Ahimsa and Jain Dharma. We will explore modern animal farming, animal agriculture’s environmental impact, fishing and our oceans, and more. Join us to learn about how the Jain way of life and ethical vegan living support and nurture each other.
