Lecture by Dr. Vandana Shiva, on Friday 13 December

On Friday 13 December at 14.00, the prominent Indian scholar, scientist and modern-day revolutionary Dr. Vandana Shiva will deliver a lecture on food sovereignty and alter-globalisation at the Jan van Eyck Auditorium.

Attendance is free, but please register by sending an email to liva.nagle@janvaneyck.nl.

Dr. Vandana Shiva is a scientist, environmental warrior, activist and author of more than 20 publications in which she challenges modern agricultural methods and sheds light on various manipulations imposed by governments. In her work, Dr. Shiva explains the methodologies of decentralisation of food policy, from government to industry, and shows how large multinationals have disproportionately benefited from decentralisation.

To ensure food security, in 1991 Dr. Shiva founded a national movement Navdanya (meaning Nine Seeds or New Gift in Hindi) to protect the diversity and integrity of living matter, and founded a seed bank. By challenging the neoliberalisation of (Indian) agriculture, Dr. Shiva has come into contact with some of the most powerful multinationals in the food industry, such as Monsanto and Cargill; and the lawsuit she filed against Monsanto has become legendary.
