23 May 2020, 19:01 - 23 May 2020, 20:00

 

Event Presenting Partner

“The COVID crisis is a crisis for human beings, but the climate crisis is a crisis for life on the planet.” — David Suzuki

“The real economy is an economy of care, for the planet and for each other” — Vandana Shiva

Legendary environmental warriors Vandana Shiva and David Suzuki, come together in this rare conversation across continents. Both are past winners of the ‘Right Livelihood Prize’ often referred to as the ‘alternative Nobel’, and have had enormous local and global impact through their work.

Now, in the middle of a global pandemic, they invite us to consider the opportunity we have to change our ways of being as a species, and how we must truly be “all in this together”.

Watch it on Facebook or YouTube.
