The annual Nantucket Project event is welcoming vegan visionaries this year. This weekend, 500 thought leaders from around the world will gather on the island of Nantucket, Mass., to \u201cdisconnect from the noise and connect with each other.\u201d Among these leaders are iconic musician and animal advocate, Moby, vegan ultra-endurance athlete Rich Roll, and former President George W. Bush - all sharing the same stage. Moby made the announcement on Instagram, posting a side-by-side photo of himself, Roll, and the former president stating, \u201cNo joke, I\u2019ll be sharing the stage at @thenantucketproject\u00a0with\u00a0@richroll\u00a0and\u00a0@georgewbush\u00a0, maybe Rich and I can convert GW to veganism?\u201d The topic of each speaker\u2019s discussion has not been publicly revealed by The Nantucket Project or its participants. However, the organization posted on Facebook today about Moby\u2019s 20-minute guided meditation to kick off the weekend. View this post on Instagram #tnp8 kicked off this morning with a 20-minute meditation led by @Moby.

A post shared by The Nantucket Project (@thenantucketproject) on Sep 13, 2018 at 8:57am PDT The goal of the event is to spark conversation, which necessitates bringing people together from all walks of life, with different experiences and opinions. Among the three, President Bush may seem like the odd man out as the conservative, omnivore career politician. However, he actually has some traits in common, particularly with Roll, an accomplished athlete and Ironman. Like Roll, President Bush was an avid runner, and in July for his 72nd birthday, he participated in the Warrior 100K, a 100-kilometer mountain bike ride to honor the servicemen and women wounded in the global war on terror. All three men have shown incredible leadership and compassion in their lives, both for fellow human beings and animals, and there is commonality in this compassion. For updates, follow The Nantucket Project on Facebook\u00a0this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 7:30 - 8:30 am EST for a live stream featuring event guests and discussion highlights.
