Global Sustainability Expert Vandana Shiva Lectures at UK

Published: Feb 27, 2013

 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 27, 2013) — Internationally regarded sustainability scholar and activist Vandana Shiva returns to the University of Kentucky Thursday to share her expertise with the campus and community.

 

Her publications and work in sustainable agriculture, development, feminist theory, alternative globalization and bioengineering as well as her creation of Navdanya, a participatory research initiative to provide direction and support to environmental activism in India, have inspired colleagues to deem her one of the brightest minds working in the interdisciplinary field of sustainability today.

 

Shiva will present her lecture at 8 p.m. Feb. 28, in Memorial Hall. This event is free and open to the public.

 

Shiva’s lecture is made possible by support from the UK Student Sustainability Council, the Student Government Association, Tally Cats, the departments of Sociology and Geography, and the Central Kentucky Council for Peace and Justice.
