People check out earthling ed he is an awesome human!

I am really impressed by his super high communication skills.

He is having conversations with non-vegans in which he is not only not-judging but holding space in an honest and loving and compassionate way.

Ed is a great example of how you can talk to people who have really different believes than you. It’s a very special skill to support growth and have a respectful human to human conversation.

Public debates

I first discovered Ed’s Public Debate Videos.

Watch that video and learn about veganism and the impact of your diet on the environment and also about how to keep a conversation around what matters. Forgetting the bigger picture and focusing on details is often a strategy people use to justify eating meat, to make themselves believe being vegan is not the better choice. So this lady here at some point talks about compost fertilizer, that it consists bones and how, in a all-vegan world, we can cover our need of fertilizer.

30 minutes structured speech

Ed speaks in British universities.

watch this video and also the comment section, he is changing the world!

2h debate with a dairy farmer

In his Podcast “The Disclosure Podcast” he has extended conversations with people from the industry and explores different aspects surrounding veganism. #education

One thing I like about this Episode is that the guest of the show, the dairy farmer, is not like a cliché stupid, narrow-minded, fast-food eating dumbass but he actually feel like “one of us”.

so what can you do next?

Get educated!

Check out his Youtube Channel, listen to his podcast, think about it, reflect about it, talk about it.

what sticks in my brain

  • Having a vegan diet is the most simple (not easy) way to have a less bad impact on the environment.

  • Producing a burger takes a much water as showering for 2 months, yes 2 months.

  • The meat and dairy industries produces more greenhouse gases than cars and planes and shit. (source:

  • A lot of the things we do cause harm but you eat 3 times a day so your choice can make a big impact.
