ABOUT SOLUTIONARY EVENTS
Solutionary Events is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit educational outreach organization with a mission to create healthy, compassionate, and regenerative communities through coordinating socially & environmentally responsible vegan events. Solutionary Events is led by a volunteer-operated team of individuals who are committed to making the world a better place. The team coordinates festivals & fairs, races & walks, film screenings, workshops, school programs, conventions, beach & park cleanups, and other educational outreach events. We also support like-minded businesses and organizations by organizing or co-organizing their events and helping to enhance the success of "solutionary certified" projects.
Embracing the Solutionary Life...One Vegan Festival at a Time
by Mary-Elizabeth Schurrer of Natural Awakenings Sarasota
"This natural biosphere that surrounds us is the origin point of all we need to sustain our lives. Our food, water and oxygen comes from the earth, and it’s our responsibility to steward these resources with utmost, intentional care. This also means extending compassion and kindness to our planet’s other inhabitants by ensuring their health, safety, welfare and humane treatment too.
That is the role of a solutionary—to be a conscious, relentless advocate for solutions in the world; to partner with initiatives, organizations and other human beings for the endurance of our collective future; and to protect the environment with regenerative communities. This grassroots endeavor is of both local and global consequence, and one movement, in particular, has brought it close to home.
Solutionary Events is a Southwest Florida based non-profit coalition that introduces people to the benefits and accessibility of a vegan lifestyle through a series of educational, mindful and ecological outreaches around the Sunshine State. One such event that has gained noticeable momentum and traction right here in our community is the Sarasota Veg Fest. This annual extravaganza is a celebration of all that harmonizes and connects us to animals, the environment and our fellow humankind."
