The Temple of Understanding ECO JUSTICE FOR ALL Online Speaker Series presents

Dr. Vandana Shiva speaking on the World Food Emergency followed by Q&A on Feb 12, 2021 at 10-11:30am ET

“Regeneration, for me, is recognizing that we live by the laws of Mother Nature. We live by her generosity…Regeneration is food democracy for the soil organisms, food democracy for biodiversity, food democracy so that no one goes hungry, food democracy so that food doesn’t become the biggest reason for climate disaster, and pandemic.”

World-renowned activist, scientist, influential author and food sovereignty advocate, Dr. Vandana Shiva, calls on citizens worldwide to protect ourselves and our planet. Shiva speaks with urgency about the social and ecological brink of extinction and the desperate need to deepen our democracies, reclaim our commons and regenerate the Earth.

Vandana Shiva who trained as a quantum physicist, now addresses the intersection of science, environmental policy and social justice in her work and books. Dr. Shiva founded Navdanya in 1991, a national movement to protect the diversity and integrity of living resources. She is recipient of the Right Livelihood Award for her work in placing women and ecology at the center of international development. Authoring more than 300 papers in leading scientific journals, and more than 20 books, Shiva is a powerful voice on ecological biodiversity and social justice.
