How do we reclaim health for our food systems?

In this special episode entitled ‘Earthly Delights’ Amisha talks with Vandana Shiva on her infamous farm in India. Vandana is a world-renowned environmental thinker, activist, feminist, philosopher of science, writer and science policy advocate. She is the founder of Navdanya Research Foundation for Science, Technology and Ecology (India) and President of Navdanya International. In 1982 she founded the Research Foundation for Science, Technology and Ecology (RFSTE), an independent research institute that addresses the most significant problems of ecology of our times, and two years later, Navdanya (‘nine seeds’) the movement in defense of biodiversity and small farmers. Vandana is recipient of many awards, including in 1993 the Right Livelihood Award, also known as the ‘Alternative Nobel Prize’, and named among the top five “Most Important People in Asia” by AsiaWeek in 2001, she is is a prolific writer and author of numerous books and serves on the board of the International Forum on Globalisation, and member of the executive committee of the World Future Council.
