Veganism, ecocentrism and plant-based opportunities in politics

Our highest goal is total animal liberation. We work towards this by educating and disseminating information to Danish citizens about the advantages of a plant-based diet for the planet and for all sentient beings: human and non-human animals alike. Veganerpartiet (The Danish Vegan Party) is founded by Henrik Vindfeldt and Michael Monberg in 2018.

We need 400.000 DKK to compete

After a long fought battle against the clock to become eligible for the national election, the party is currently low on funds. Veganerpartiet can participate in the political debate in Denmark on equal terms with all the other Danish political parties, but it requires your help to make it happen.

Running For National Election

Veganerpartiet will need approximately 70,000 votes in order to win a minimym of representation of 4 seats in the Danish Parliament “Folketinget”.

So far, we have gathered thousands of supporters and lead a very passionate group of people in Denmark to better the lives of animals and promote a ecocentric ideology in politics.

Running For Municipal and Regional Elections

Veganerpartiet is participating in municipal and regional elections throughout Denmark and are currently mobilising candidates across the whole country. There are 98 municipalities and 5 regions in Denmark. It is crucial to have representatives in all locations to give people a posibility to vote and act for the animals.

20,182 Signatures To Run for Election

During 2018 to 2020 Veganerpartiet collected 20,182 signatures or “voters declarations” required to participate in the next national election. The high threshold makes Denmark one of the most difficult countries to run for office. Gathering that many signatures was no little feat and something that has lead to massive attention in Danish national media as well as international media.

Help us in our efforts to strengthen the vegan community through political actions

You can support our work through donations. Right now, we are working to reach our 400,000 DKK goal. That is the only way to compete in the political elections on the same level as the other parties. In times of corona, it is necessary to advertise through social media and we need a budget for election posters and material. Gathering the needed signatures used most of our financial resources. With 400,000 DKK we are sure to get a great election i Denmark. None of the team members have ever received a paycheck for their efforts. Most have quit their daytime job to make veganism a part of Danish politics their life goal.
