Words from Omega:

Join Vandana Shiva, Michael Yellow Bird, food justice activists, and Standing Rock water protectors to explore a shift toward Earth-centered politics

Renowned scientist and activist Vandana Shiva has made teaching by example the basis of her work. As an international inspiration for women’s empowerment, the ecological movement, and a collective response to corporate domination, she has implemented worldwide initiatives in numerous fields. Her actions against multinational corporations in defense of water, natural seeds, women’s education, and indigenous peoples have earned her countless awards, including the Right Livelihood Award—also known as the “alternative Nobel prize.”

A regenerative, post-fossil fuel economy—including biodiverse, localized food systems that also support traditional lifestyles—can rejuvenate the health of the planet, and increase well-being within our communities.   

This informative program includes lectures, question-and-answer sessions, panels with guest speakers, small group discussions, mindfulness practice, and an in-depth tour of the Omega Center for Sustainable Living (OSCL), a sustainable water reclamation center built in one of the greenest buildings on the planet.
