On January 23, author, activist and leader of a global food sovereignty movement, Dr. Vandana Shiva, will give a lecture Soil not Oil: Biodiversity-based Agriculture to Address the Climate Crisis at the 8th annual lecture created to honor the memory of Stephen H. Schneider, Stanford professor and renowned climate scientist. Her lecture will explore the impacts of large-scale industrial agriculture on climate change, biodiversity and food security.
Dr. Shiva is an advocate for a more equitable and sustainable food system that uses indigenous knowledge and a wide diversity of crops. She sees a return to nature and organic methods of farming as a solution for both food insecurity and climate change. As a founder of the Navdanya initiative, she has established seed banks around India and programs to teach farmers organic techniques.
