Maybe a EUROPE thread would be better?

There are a few dutch people on this forum. I think it is better to make it a Europe forum. And if it is growing bigger you can split it up?

There's at least 4 Dutch persons , but I agree: one Europe thread (excluding the UK, for which there already is one).



Damn Britons, don't they want to be part of Europe?

Hi!

I'm from Belgium (the Dutchspeaking part) and I often visit a board for veg*ns from both Belgium and the Netherlands (that's where I know Vegantastic from), so it feels quite natural to join in here.



Question: is there anyone here who knows both the Netherlands/Belgium and some other, different country well enough to compare them when it comes to, e.g., the number of veg*ns, availability of veg*n products, availability of veg*n courses in restaurants and snackbars, responses/reactions of family/friends/strangers to veg*ns, and so on? I'm just curious. I'm particularly interested in the US (since I've studied American Studies - but veg*nism was not a course ), but I'd like to know about other countries, too.

Anya, I can only tell you about Germany, but a comprison with many other countries would be great.



I found differing numbers, but the latest study found that 8% of Germany's population are vegetarian - while it is 2.5 % in the US. Yay!

As a comparison: in 1983, only 0.6% of the German population was vegetarian! Just imagine what it will be like in another 20 years then..

I found an article that said that 1% of the World population might be vegan. I say it must be more, considering how many people are on the verge of starvation. These people sure have a vegan diet, although of course not by choice.



Something interesting is that according to a recent study, veg*nism increases with education. 17% of the university students in Germany are "vegetarian". I can't tell you about veganism overe here though.



so: vegetarian:

Germany - 8% ... USA - 2.5% ... other countries?

Hi, newbie here, from Brussels (Flemish/Dutch speaking).



My SO is Dutch but that does not make me Dutch (bannish the thought, LOL !)...



I agree about Europe. It does not make sense to classify per country. Maybe try CONTINENTAL EUROPE, as opposed to the UK ?

Michael, what honour to be priviliged with our own thread.



But it's true enough that a thread for Europe (Britain excluded indeed, as they already have their own ) in it's entirety seems more appropriate.



Still good to see some more Dutch people here The same, of course, goes for people of other nationalities who seem to associate themselves with "us Dutch folk"

Has anyone been to the Green Planet Cafe, Spuistraat, Amsterdam? I came across it in April, but didn't have time to stop for a meal as I had to rush back to Schipol. I believe that it is fairly new? It opened last year?

I don't know exactly, but I think Green Planet is already there for more years.

I haven't been there.

Well, yesterday a teacher was shot in the Netherlands.

I was just in complete shock.

It's not a nice way to start up a thread again, but it's the main thing that's currently on my mind.

No, but I'd like to visit someday. It looks beautiful -- and I have a good friend whom I'd like to eventually meet that lives there.



Have you, Wanda?

Shot by a student, I assume? That is horrific... I cannot imagine ever intentionally taking a life, particularly that of someone that I knew in any respect -- esteemed, hated, or otherwise.

Have you, Wanda?

I spent the first 23 years of my life there. I guess that makes me Dutch.

I haven't been back the last 6 years though.
