It’s not an investment if it’s destroying the planet
Vandana Shiva’s research work and activism focus on food and agriculture. She supports sustainable agroecological solutions to food security and poverty in the developing world, with women playing an integral role as farmers and decision-makers.
Her battles with industry giants such as Coca-cola (water rights) and Monsanto (control of biotechnological innovations such as seeds through the patent system) have increased awareness of the war going on for control of our food system. She believes people have a right to food, and they must fight for it.
