Jude Fanton of the Seed Savers Network interviews Dr. Vandana Shiva, environmental activist, seed freedom campaigner and founder of NAVDANYA and RFSTE.
Vandana says about her work: “Over the past three decades I have tried to be the change I want to see. When I found that dominant science and technology served the interests of powerful, I left academics to found the Research Foundation for Science, Technology and Ecology, a participatory, public interest research organisation. When I found global corporations wanted to patent seeds, crops or life forms, I started Navdanya to protect biodiversity, defend farmers’ rights and promote organic farming.”
The Seed Savers Network was established in 1986 to preserve local varieties of useful plants by French-Australian couple Jude and Michel Fanton. The organisation is known for its community seed action in thirty-seven countries within community groups, indigenous organisations, Transition Towns and also with interested individuals wanting to spearhead seed action.
