Volunteer opportunities ❤️
Local vegans unite! Volunteer with Vegans of Beijing (VoB) to create community engagement surrounding all things vegan. Start conversations to let the city know vegan options are in demand, and here to stay.
Making sustainable lifestyle choices never tasted so good! Think food, fitness, and nightlife — tied together with veganist values. Vegans of Beijing (VoB) hosts weekly meetups, intimate dinner get-togethers, vegan film nights, dietary discussion panels — plus a handful of large-scale events, too — like vegan-themed festivals or community-wide diet-challenges — all for the vibrant and supportive vegans living in Beijing.
Of course, you’re wondering what’s on the menu! You guessed it — VoB activities offer a delightful selection of vegan foods! Try these on for size:
- Miso onion soup with crostini and cheese
- Pumpkin gnocchi with chorizo sauce
- Apple and fennel salad and granita
- Chocolate pecan tart with bubble tea creme
Just a few eco-concious appetizers to get your mouth watering. You’ll have to make it out to one of VoB’s events for main course!

If you ask someone why they went vegan in the first place, they probably mentioned one of these three main reasons — for the environment, for the animals, for their own health.
In a world where one-third of all food goes to waste, where global meat production is increasing at an alarming rate, and where modern agriculture and logistics make a plant-based diet accessible — yeah — it’s time for more people to learn about the vegan lifestyle.
Vegans of Beijing (VoB) is a volunteer-led network dedicated to promoting a plant-based lifestyle in Beijing. At over a thousand members strong, VoB works with local Beijing restaurants to negotiate for more vegan options — increasing awareness and demand for vegan-friendly foods and products.
VoB wants the world know — it’s possible to eat a diverse range of delicious foods that do not come from animals.
It’s 2020. Being vegan doesn’t mean eating salad and rice everyday — yes, even in Beijing! In fact, these days you can eat everything you are used to eating, just the vegan version!
On a mission to make the vegan lifestyle in Beijing as easy as possible, VoB is building a supportive community of vegan practitioners and advocates — really nice people who share tips and show each other where to find great local food. Of course, they welcome newbies and people just curious about veganism — and are happy to provide vegan-friendly knowledge and support.
VoB believes being vegan is all about living a lifestyle that does the least possible harm to our planet and the animals we share it with.
