"Seed Freedom & Food Democracy": Vandana Shiva at Center for Ethics

Emory University: speaker Dr. Vandana Shiva at the Center for Ethics

From her 2006 visit to Emory:
Shiva, a noted physicist, author and internationally renowned justice advocate, links food production with social, ethical and political issues, and calls for dramatic changes in current farming practices.
“Eating is the ultimate ethical act, it is the ultimate political act,” Shiva said, as is an act that ultimately may decide the fate of human health—and the planet.
Shiva made her remarks during a visit to Emory Tuesday, Oct. 17 as the Center for Ethics’ fall keynote speaker. Trained as a scientist, Shiva left academics to start the Research Foundation for Science, Technology and Ecology, and other iniatives formed to protect biodiversity, defend farmers’ rights and promote organic farming.
