Friday 1 November 2019, from 19:00 until 22:30

Join Net Impact Amsterdam and Yerba in celebration of World Vegan Day


an evening of curiosity, discussion, and flavour
through a curated four-course vegan dinner with Wine Pairing, by plant-forward chef walter marskamp.

We know commercial agricultural systems and mainstream consumption choices put great stress on natural resources and biodiversity, jeopardize human health, and can be deeply inefficient at transferring energy and nutrients from one source to another.

To explore how we, as conscious consumers, can participate in stimulating change, we have invited Dierenwelzijnscheck and Cityplot, plus several experts in the field of regenerative and ethical agricultural systems, to share their perspectives. These experts will explore their vision for an inclusive shift in the way our food is produced and will introduce the roles that consumers can take in actively stimulating sustainable practices.

Courses will be served in between short speaker presentations, and followed by a light guided table dialogue and solutions crafting. See the full agenda below.


Herba Vora comes from the Latin word ‘Herba’, meaning plants, and ‘Vora’, meaning to devour.
