Environmental activist and author Vandana Shiva (Founder, Navdanya) and Helena Norberg-Hodge (Director of Local Futures), discuss how the globalized world will move forward after the Covid-19 pandemic. Vandana explains that the current pandemic is a direct result of economic globalization, and that small-scale, diversified farming is hugely important if we are to heal the broken climate and travel a path towards localization. Localization, she says, is where the flourishing of life begins.
This conversation took place in connection with World Localization Day, June 21, 2020. This event included a chorus of 100 voices from across the world speaking on localization, including messages from Russell Brand, Jane Goodall, Vandana Shiva, Noam Chomsky, Joanna Macy, Adebayo Akomolafe, Manish Jain, and Pat McCabe to name a few.
