Indian environmental activist and author Dr Vandana Shiva is this year’s winner of the Sydney Peace Prize.
For decades, Dr Shiva has been fighting for the rights of small farmers across India. And while supporters of India’s 1960s Green Revolution, have trumpeted fertilisers, pesticides and modified crops like BT Cotton for saving India – Dr Shiva has a different approach.
She believes that the future of Indian agriculture is in small, organic farms.
I caught up with Dr Shiva in Sydney, to find out how she is changing India’s farming industry, one seed at a time.
