Due to her advocacy for food sovereignty and sustainable agriculture, the scientist and activist Dr. Vandana Shiva has become an icon of the anti­globalisationmovement. In her keynote speech for the Lessingtage she challenges us to disobey the authority of multinational companies who privatize seeds and water, and to take action against global capitalism. “Instead of putting a monetary value on nature, we should fight for it” she says, and dares us to join her in the non­violent fight for a better future.
