Thu, Feb 25, 2021 4:00 PM - Thu, Feb 25, 2021 6:00 PM @ Online Event

Join Vandana Shiva, Leah Penniman, Winona LaDuke, and Jeremy Lent for a discussion on moving the world to a community-oriented way of life.

About this Event

The path toward an ecological civilization moves us from an uncivilized society based on selfish wealth accumulation to one that is community-oriented and life-affirming. You’re invited to join us for a virtual conversation on the ways communities are already working toward that goal—and how you can be a part of it.

This event features contributors to our upcoming issue of YES! Magazine, “An Ecological Civilization”—Vandana Shiva, Leah Penniman, Winona LaDuke, and Jeremy Lent—and will be facilitated by YES! executive editor Zenobia Jeffries Warfield and Andrew Schwartz, co-founder and executive vice president of the Institute for Ecological Civilization. Reserve your seat now!

Vandana Shiva is a scholar, author, and activist. Her pioneering work around food sovereignty, traditional agriculture, and women’s rights has shifted how the world views these issues. She has received numerous awards and honors for her work and has authored more than 20 books, including Reclaiming the Commons: Biodiversity, Indigenous Knowledge, and the Rights of Mother Earth and Oneness vs the 1%. She currently lives between Delhi and Dehradun, Uttaranchal at Navdanya, a women-led organic farm, school, and café she founded that promotes justice for Earth and all living beings through agroecology and seed freedom.

Leah Penniman is a farmer, educator, author, and food sovereignty activist. Penniman is co-founder and program manager of Soul Fire Farm, in Grafton, New York. The farm’s mission is to end racism and injustice in the food system and by reclaiming the inherent right to belong to the earth and to have agency in the food system as Black and Brown people. The farm’s flagship program is the Black Latinx Farmers Immersion course to train beginner farmers. She is the author of Farming While Black and the upcoming book Black Earth Wisdom.

Her books include Last Standing Woman, All Our Relations and In the Sugarbush. LaDuke is a YES! contributing editor.

Jeremy Lent is an author whose writings investigate the patterns of thought that have led our civilization to its current existential crisis. His recent book, The Patterning Instinct: A Cultural History of Humanity’s Search for Meaning, explores the way humans have made meaning of the cosmos from hunter-gatherer times to the present day. He is founder of the nonprofit Liology Institute, dedicated to fostering an integrated worldview that could enable humanity to thrive sustainably on Earth. His upcoming book is The Web of Meaning: Integrating Science and Traditional Wisdom to Find Our Place in the Universe.
