Environmental activist, author, pioneer, physicist and mother, Dr Vandana Shiva has written over 20 books on the social, economic and ecological costs of corporate-led globalisation. Over 35 years ago she founded a Research Institute committed to discovering solutions to the most pressing ecological and social issues that face the world today. She says the decisions made by unaccountable leaders, in our shallow form of democracy, are pushing countries to war, destroying the planet and the freedoms of people. Her solution for reclaiming our freedom, is a deeper democracy, which she has called “Earth Democracy.”
In this video Dr Vandana Shiva shares her thought provoking alternative where all citizens of the planet are involved in decision making and democracy is practiced close to the earth.
