Dr. Vandana Shiva; Traditional knowledge, biodiversity and sustainable living
There is no better advocate for the biodiversity of our planet, the health of our food and water, the rights of all, and the preservation of the life of the seed than Dr. Vandana Shiva. She is truly a light in these troubled times and a great inspiration to me and so many others. Her books, her work and her organization Navdanya are making positive change in the world through hands on education in advocating a world of peace and environmental democracy. The battle is far from lost with brilliant sensient beings such as Dr. Shiva in our world.
Also just to mention, Dr. Shiva and Navdanya have joined the suit against Monsanto mentioned here: Farmers And Seed Producers Launch Pre-emptive Strike On Monsanto It's time for the seed satyagraha.
