Plant Futures Initiative
The Plant Futures Initiative empowers college students and young professionals to become ethical leaders, systems thinkers, and enlightened eaters within the ever-changing food system. The program emerged as the first-ever university-level course focused on equipping the next generation of leaders and entrepreneurs to face challenges such as climate change, public health, food insecurity, biodiversity, and food access.
2022 Plant Futures Symposium
The 2022 Plant Futures Symposium will focus on the urgent need to transition to a plant-centric food system with a specific focus on entrepreneurship and innovation. The interactive event is open to the public and is projected to reach thousands of attendees from around the globe, including professionals and hundreds of students from UC Berkeley, Harvard, Yale, and UCLA. Attendees will have access to speaker presentations, interactive discussions, question-and-answer sessions, cooking workshops, and networking opportunities.

During her studies to become a registered dietitian, Anja—a longtime vegetarian—transitioned to a vegan diet. Living in Kalamazoo, Michigan at the time (Go Broncos!), she met Maggie and Tammie through VegOut Kalamazoo (one of VegOut’s first focus cities) and began collaborating with the duo. When she’s not writing about new vegan eats, practicing as a pediatric clinical dietitian, and virtually coaching fellow plant-based eaters, you can find her creating veg-centric recipes, trying new cruelty-free products, and spending time with her partner Addison and cat Kovu.
