Vandana Shiva at the United Nations Office at Geneva
World-renowned eco-feminist and "rock star of the environmental movement", Vandana Shiva, presents her latest book "Oneness vs. The 1%", equal parts a sobering warning on the dangers to human rights and biodiversity of the elite-led extractive economy of our time, and a profound reflection on why this is a unique moment to collectively correct the false construction of capital as the sole force of wealth (and well-being). Her presentation opened the second day of UNRISD conference, "Overcoming Inequalities in a Fractured World: Between Elite Power and Social Mobilization".
