Green NAU is excited to announce an evening with Dr. Vandana Shiva!
In 2003, Time Magazine identified Dr. Shiva as an environmental ‘hero’, and Asia Week has called her one of the five most powerful communicators in Asia. In November 2010, Forbes Magazine identified Dr. Shiva as one of the Seven Most Powerful Women on the Globe.
Dr. Vandana Shiva is an author, activist and scientific advisor who focuses on global food security and environmental sustainability. Dr. Shiva combines intellectual enquiry with activism, and her work spans teaching at universities worldwide to working with farmers in rural India. Her books The Violence of the Green Revolution and Monocultures of the Mind, pose essential challenges to the dominant paradigm of non-sustainable, industrial agriculture. Through her books Biopiracy, Stolen Harvest and Water Wars, Dr. Shiva outlines the social, economic and ecological costs of corporate-led globalization.
This event is open to all NAU students, faculty, staff and the general Flagstaff community.
