About Us

Welcome to Viva!’s Teach Vegan, your gateway to a world of compassionate education.

Viva! is the UK’s leading vegan campaigning charity, specialising in undercover investigations and high-profile animal campaigns. Founded in 1994 by Juliet Gellatley, we have spent nearly 30 years creating a kinder, more sustainable world for humans and animals alike.

Empowering Educators and Inspiring Students

At Viva!’s Teach Vegan, we understand the vital role education plays in shaping a brighter future. We are proud to offer an extensive array of resources designed to help teachers and students explore the compelling aspects of a vegan lifestyle. Our focus encompasses health and nutrition, environmental responsibility, animal welfare, and global development issues; all approached through engaging exercises and quizzes that make learning not only educational but also enjoyable.


30 Years of Experience, Expertise, and Excellence

Our commitment to education extends far beyond the classroom. Viva! has been delivering enlightening and impactful school talks for almost three decades. Our network of trained school speakers is dedicated to providing free talks to students aged 11 to 18, empowering young minds with knowledge and inspiring them to make compassionate choices.


Resources for All

Viva!’s Teach Vegan offers a wealth of free resource packs tailored for both primary and secondary schools. These packs are thoughtfully designed to enrich the curriculum and encourage students to think critically about the world around them. We believe that education is the key to fostering change, and these resources are our way of helping educators empower the next generation.


Cooking Demonstrations That Ignite Inspiration

What’s more, our platform features exciting cooking demonstrations that showcase the delicious and diverse world of vegan cuisine. We believe that through food, we can foster an appreciation for the joys of compassionate living, and our cooking demonstrations are the perfect way to do just that.
