    Dr Vandana Shiva Inspires BENIH BALI Program

    In August, Dr Vandana Shiva visited Jakarta, east Java and Bali, inspiring large audiences on the importance of our endless fight for seed freedom. Under a program entitled OUR SEEDS, OUR FUTURE: Strengthening Indonesia’s Food Sovereignty, several non-profit organizations, including Mantasa, Slow Food Bali and IDEP Foundation, collaborated to develop a special program in Bali. Besides making a powerful presentation at a Celebration Dinner and Seminar in Bali, Vandana Shiva visited the Greenschool and had a chance to tour the UNESCO living cultural rice producing area of Jatiluwih.

    We live in a time of uncertainty, from climate change to polarized viewpoints and values. At the same time a growing body of people are working to define new models to protect our genetic commons in the public domain.
