Description: The CSA, Meal Exchange Guelph, and Universities Fighting World Hunger Guelph (UFWH), are excited to bring you Vandana Shiva.

Dr. Vandana Shiva is an environmental activist, ecofeminist and food security advocate. She speaks on a variety of topics, all of which are relevant to the students and community members of Guelph. Her personable nature, passion, and dedication to her work is inspiring and empowering. If the University of Guelph’s history as a champion in agricultural studies and the city’s devotedness to environmentalism were not enough to draw a connection between Vandana and the students and community members of Guelph, then perhaps her status as a University of Guelph Alumna is. Shiva received her MA in Philosophy of Science from UoG and was invited to receive an honorary degree from the University in 2012.

Join us, October 7th to hear Vandana Shiva speak about:
The Right to Food – Women, Development, and the Global Economy.
Dr. Vandana Shiva challenges us to think about development in more sustainable ways by bringing attention to leading social justice questions of the day: how natural resources can be protected in order to sustain the earth and our futures, the impact of globalization in rural communities, and the role of women in economic production. She will bring attention to the power of activism to encourage dialogue and positive social change, with a particular focus on access, availability, and quality of our food as a human right.
