James Aspey

Increase the peace, educate, and inspire; push your limits and live life to the fullest! James Aspey is 28 years old old and a vegan and animal rights activist from Sydney, Australia. At 17, after being diagnosed with Leukaemia, he was told he had 6 weeks to live unless he started immediate treatment. James won his battle with Leukaemia. However, as he fought, he started analysing his own life and finding areas where he was causing harm and suffering to the planet, to himself, and to others.
Catch James on the Main Stage as part of the main Festival programme.
