Sustainability Film and Discussion Series

The Seeds of Vandana Shiva (2021, 82 min.)


"The Seeds of Vandana Shiva" explores the interconnectedness of seeds, food, environment and social justice through the remarkable life story of Gandhian eco-activist and agro-ecologist Vandana Shiva. The film shows how the battle against multinational agribusiness has become an international struggle between two opposing visions for feeding the world: a multinational corporate model of chemically dependent monoculture that rewards a capitalist imperative of profit and growth, or "Earth Democracy," promoted by Shiva, which honors ecology, biodiversity, sustainability and community.

About the Discussion Facilitators

Rachael Pressley, Western Upper Peninsula Food Systems Collaborative and senior regional planner for the Western U.P. Planning and Development Region (WUPPDR), and MTU student Abraham Stone (ecology and evolutionary biology) will facilitate the discussion.
