Published on by

Hello Friends, I strongly recommend the following videoconference to the community: Many environmental subjects are discussed, including water related issues. Resume: Vandana Shiva with Maude Barlow, Cormac Cullinan, Pablo Solon. Moderated by David Harvey and the co-authors of the book: The Rights of Nature. They discuss how to transform our relationship with the environment to address climate change and related problems like natural disasters. The rights-based approach to nature they advocate is being discussed at the UN. Vandana Shiva is an Indian philosopher, environmentalist, and feminist, Maude Barlow is a water activist and Chair of The Council of Canadians, Cormac Cullinan is an environmental lawyer based in South Africa, Pablo Solon is the Ambassador of Bolivia to the UN, David Harvey is Distinguished Professor of Anthropology at CUNY Graduate Center. Enjoy,
