Tony Wardle


Tony has been with Viva! since its launch, and as well as being Associate Director he is editor of Viva!Life magazine. While he can turn his hand to most things that Viva! does, his time is consumed mostly with words: writing for and editing Viva!Life, checking and editing a large output of written material, as well as conceiving and writing much of it.
Tony witnessed what life was really like on modern dairy farms when he lived surrounded by them. The catalyst for his veganism was when a cow gave birth in the field outside his house and he watched as she followed with great anxiety her little bull calf as he was carried away to the farmyard – to be shot.


Campaigning as an older vegan

Whether it’s about wanting a better world, or simply making sure that our own dietary needs are taken care of, we vegans can be a demanding lot. Most of us are passionate about our veganism, and about the many and varied causes it can connect with. There are as many ways to campaign as an older vegan as there are older vegans, and this panel discussion features three people who, between them, have just about seen it all. Join us for an interactive hour to explore the many and varied ways we can campaign for what we believe in – whether you want to share your own stories, or pick the brains of our panellists.
