The activist, and co-founder of animal rights organization Surge, delivered the speech earlier this year
Earthling Ed‘s TEDx talk on veganism is now available to watch online on TED’s YouTube channel, which has over 12 million subscribers.
The activist, whose real name is Ed Winters, was invited to Lund University in Sweden to deliver a talk on veganism back in January, describing the opportunity as an ‘incredible’ honor.
Challenging dominant paradigms
On Instagram stories, Winters announced the speech was live, saying:
“I tried to talk about a broad range [of subjects] so I talk a lot about the hidden truth in the dairy, things that consumers simply aren’t aware of, but I also talk about the need to challenge dominant paradigms and how important change throughout history and indeed into the future will always come about by people challenging what’s seen as normal. So I really hope that resonates with you and that you like the talk in general.”
