Born in 1952 in Dehradun, India. Obtained a PhD in Physics at the university of Ontario in Canada with the thesis “Hidden variables and locality in quantum theory.” Nowadays she combines the struggle for human rights with the protection of the environment. Vandana Shiva combines Quantum Physics with social activism to peacefully resist a system that she considers has colonized the Earth, life, and the spirit. She recounts how she started defending the forest, the seeds, and the local ways of life and production, against the registration and control of patents claimed by multinational corporations. Our civilization, to survive, will have to review its model of understanding and interacting with the world, taking as an example the holistic knowledge of the Chinese and Indian civilizations that, according to Shiva, survived history essentially because they differ from the Occident in the relationship they have established with nature.
