“The Misuse of Science in the Global Crisis”
Vandana Shiva is a world-renowned environmental leader and recipient of the 1993 Alternative Nobel Peace Prize (the Right Livelihood Award) and the author of several bestselling books. Activist and scientist, Shiva leads, with Ralph Nader and Jeremy Rifkin, the International Forum on Globalization. Before becoming an activist, Shiva was one of India’s leading physicists.
As a physicist, she has long understood that science is being used in the service of unsustainable practices. She has helped thoughtful people everywhere to understand what “development” has done to women and to the poor. She is a leading world figure calling for redirecting policies and practices.
