Seeds and Seedlings: Agents of Change

Room 701A
Description: 
This session features a short, powerful 10 minute film, “Roots of Change: Food Sovereignty, Women and Eco-Justice”, that includes women’s voices from India, El Salvador, USA, the United Nations Environmental Program, and the UN Commission on Trade and Development. Then hear from women visionaries and accomplished change agents including Dr. Vandana Shiva of Seed Freedom in India. These leaders foster women’s empowerment as an integral pathway towards rejuvenating our soil, our food, our air, our psyche and our communities. Each will reflect on how their faith sustains their social justice work.
