World-renowned eco-feminist and „rock star of the environmental movement“, Vandana Shiva, presents her latest book „Oneness vs. The 1%“, equal parts a sobering warning on the dangers to human rights and biodiversity of the elite-led extractive economy of our time, and a profound reflection on why this is a unique moment to collectively correct the false construction of capital as the sole force of wealth (and well-being). Her presentation opened the second day of UNRISD conference, „Overcoming Inequalities in a Fractured World: Between Elite Power and Social Mobilization“. UNRISD International Conference is a forum for analysis and dialogue that brought together academics, UN representatives, policy makers and civil society.
