Dr. Vandana Shiva combines sharp intellectual enquiry with courageous activism, speaking out on environmental and social justice issues worldwide. Time Magazine identified Dr. Shiva as “an environmental hero” in 2003, and in November 2010, Forbes Magazine named Dr. Shiva one of the Seven Most Powerful Women on the Globe. For the last two decades, Dr. Shiva’s organization Navdanya has worked with local communities and organizations, serving more than 500,000 farmers, resulting in the conservation of more than 3,000 rice varieties from across India, and the creation of 60 seed banks in 16 states across the country.
