Vandana Shiva: Eco-Social Justice on the Global Fronlines
Start Date: 3/22/2017Start Time: 5:00 PM
End Date: 3/22/2017End Time: 8:00 PM
Event Description:

Cultural Events Board in partnership with Eye Resist and the Eco-Social Justice team at the Environmental Center present Vandana Shiva, a world-renowned policy expert, author, global leader and justice activist. 

In 2010, Forbes Magazine identified Shiva as one of the Seven Most Powerful Women in the Globe. She has received the Right Livelihood Award, also known as the "Alternative Nobel Prize," and continued to author books, policy papers and more.

Shiva is a trained nuclear and quantum physicist who dedicates herself to cultivating "earth democracy," and contributing in fundamental ways to changing the practice and paradigms of agriculture, food, science and economics.

She has made significant contributions to the areas of Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) and biodiversity while making visible the social, economic and ecological costs of corporate-led globalization. She is a famed activist raising awareness about the perils of genetically-modified foods and increasingly monopolized food systems.

On top of her policy and activist work in India, Shiva advises governments worldwide and is currently working with the government of Bhutan to make the nation 100 percent organic and with the governments of Tuscany and Rome to create a hopeful and livable future for young people. She still works with her famed Navdanya project, which, among many notable accomplishments, has founded over 40 seed banks in India in support of Indian farmers.
