ABOUT THE EVENT
During this fireside chat, Dr. Vandana Shiva will discuss an existential crisis with
emergencies faced by humankind – the pandemics of health, hunger, poverty, fear, and
hopelessness, as well as the emergencies of climate, extinction, injustice, exclusion, inequality, and the dispossession and disposability of large numbers of humanity.
She will detail how these emergencies are interconnected and have common roots in a worldview of separation from the Earth, and the illusion of superiority over other species, races, genders – as Dr. Shiva has termed it, the ECO apartheid.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Dr. Vandana Shiva, an activist and trained physicist, completed her Ph.D. on the subject “Hidden Variables and Non-locality in Quantum Theory” from the University of Western Ontario in Canada. She later shifted to interdisciplinary research in science, technology, and environmental policy, which she carried out at the Indian Institute of Science and the Indian Institute of Management in Bangalore.
She is the founder of the Research Foundation for Science, Technology and Ecology, as well as Navdanya, and Bija Vidyapeeth - each of which focus on ecological and social issues, sustainable living, and movements to protect the diversity and integrity of living resources.

The Poe Garage has launched a new payment system to facilitate guest entry and exit. Instead of pulling a ticket, guests will use one of the garage pay stations to enter their license plate number and pay the parking fee prior to attending their event. Cameras will recognize the license plate number and automatically raise the gate upon exit. Please read the new signage and follow all directions at the pay stations to avoid getting a citation.
Note: pre-paid parkers do not need to use the pay stations (the cameras will recognize the license plate that was entered at the time of pre-purchase). You can prepay for parking here https://strazcenter.parkmobile.io/
