About the event

The Seeds of Vandana Shiva focuses on the people, circumstances and seminal events in Vandana’s life – what shaped her thinking and defined her purpose. It also shows how the battle against multinational agribusiness has become an international struggle between two visions for feeding the world: The first, a multinational corporate model of chemically dependent monoculture that rewards a capitalist imperative of extraction for profit. And the other, ‘Earth Democracy, that honours ecology, biodiversity, sustainability and community— what Dr. Shiva demonstrates is the only way forward for the future of food.

Vandana Shiva is a world-renowned environmental thinker, activist, feminist, philosopher of science, writer and science policy advocate. She is the founder of Navdanya Research Foundation for Science, Technology and Ecology in India and President of Navdanya International. Navdanya is a movement in defence of biodiversity and the contributions made to the climate, environment and society by small farmers. The recipient of the Right Livelihood Award, (the ‘Alternative Nobel Prize’) and the Sydney Peace Prize, she has been named one of “the world’s most prominent radical scientists” by the Guardian.
