Dr. Vandana Shiva, world-renowned Indian scientist, environmentalist, and agricultural activist was designated by Time magazine a “Hero for the Planet.” Winner of the alternative Nobel Peace Prize (the Right Livelihood Award) and named by AsiaWeek as one of the top five most important people in Asia, Dr. Shiva is the author of numerous books including Biopiracy: The Plunder of Nature and Knowledge and Stolen Harvest: The Hijacking of the Global Food Supply. In addition, she has published over three hundred papers in leading journals, and is a founding board member of the International Forum on Globalization and the founder of Navdanya International, a science and policy research center based in India.

While daily news reports of increasing worldwide food riots demonstrate the failure of the current global industrial food system, Dr. Vandana Shiva will offer wise and innovative solutions for the grim global realities of climate change and horrific food shortages.

"Shiva has devoted her life to fighting for the rights of ordinary people in India. Her fierce intellect and her disarmingly friendly, accessible manner have made her a valuable advocate for people all over the developing world.” —Ms. Magazine

Introduced by Jerry Mander, Director, International Forum on Globalization (IFG) and Debi Barker, Director, Navdanya International – US Office

Co-sponsored by International Forum on Globalization, KPFA Radio 94.1 FM, and Navdanya International
