Rachida Brocklehurst


British writer and journalist

Appearing Saturday 1.30pm in the Activists Summit 


Rachida is a British copywriter, entrepreneur and journalist currently residing in Brussels, Belgium. A passionate vegan, traveller and foodie, she can often be found lurking in the aisles of her local bio store. She run the online vegan magazine The Green V and has also recently launched a vegan apparel store, where 30% of all profits are donated to a different animal charity each month.


Her personal blog, Coffee and Vegan Croissants was created to provide a place where vegans (vegetarians and the vi-curious) who live in, or are visiting, Brussels can find tasty places to eat, drink and be merry; very merry in fact! She has now combined that content with business, travel and lifestyle articles and views the blog as her safe corner of the Internet to be honest, authentic and slightly eccentric too. She frequently heads out of Brussels to nearby cities and countries, devouring plant-based delicacies on the way.


Rachida’s dream is to make veganism more contemporary and accessible and to educate those who want to be educated. We aren't all sandal-wearing hippies, but we do have one thing in common: we want to make a difference.
