Dr Vandana Shiva

Dr Vandana Shiva - Sydney Peace Prize Lecture

3 November

Dr Vandana Shiva is an Indian physicist, noted environmentalist, eco-feminist and human rights activist. Vandana’s work highlights the fundamental connection between human rights and the protection of the environment. Governments worldwide seek her counsel on sustainable development as she offers solutions to critical problems posed by globalisation and climate change in poverty-stricken nations. Her latest book, Soil Not Oil, identifies the ecologically sound and socially just ways to protect a fragile planet.
Join Vandana before she accepts the 2010 City of Sydney Peace Prize, which will be awarded by the Sydney Peace Foundation the following day. The evening will end with Aboriginal soprano Deborah Cheetham singing a tribute to peace and to Vandana.

Where: Concert Hall, Sydney Opera House.
Cost: Adult $30, Concession $25.
