On Aug 17, 2020, the University of British Columbia in Canada invited Dr. Vandana Shiva to hold the first on-line Masterclass with students from UBC’s Faculty of Land and Food Systems. Vandana Shiva gave a presentation and then the students self-organized the lively and warm Q and A period.

Vandana Shiva remembers with fondness her time as a student in Canada. She was trained as a physicist before shifting to interdisciplinary research in science, technology and environmental policy. She earned her PhD in quantum theory at the University of Western Ontario.

Currently she is based in Dehra Dun, India. She has authored over 20 books, including The Violence of the Green Revolution, Monocultures of the Mind, Soil not Oil and Oneness Vs. The 1%.

On the day this masterclass was held, she was sheltering in place on what was once her mothers farm in Dun Valley. It is now the site of Navdania, a non profit that Vandana Shiva founded. Navdania is dedicated to the protection of biological and cultural diversity.

Rickey Yada, Dean and Professor - Faculty of Land and Food Systems began with a Land Acknowledgement

Vandana Shiva spoke for about 10 minutes and then engaged with the students.
