Sufism encourages compassion, love for the other and humbleness. Vegetarianism can be seen as an act of compassion towards the animals. How is it possible to change habits within a religious community, but also for the generations to come? Nadim Ghodbane, who has been an activist in several environment-political movements for a long time, decided to become a vegetarian also for ecological but mainly because of personal, spiritual reasons and his love for animals. He and his dialogue partner discuss in a very dense dialogue the politics and economics of eating meat, anthropological and religious dimensions of vegetarianism and the perspectives of a sustainable re-invention and strengthening of the ecological movement through spirituality which would eventually lead to nothing less than a revolution of our life styles and consumer habits.
