World Environment Day message from Vandana Shiva

The leading ecologist "reminds us that we are part of the Earth, and that we all have a duty to care for her future. Two centuries of fossil fuel driven development is pushing humanity to the brink. Dr. Shiva clearly spells out how we need to, and can, change course."

June 5th is the UN declared World Environment Day. In this 5:30 min. video, the Indian activist-ecologist, seed saver and campaigner reminds us that "we are the earth."

"The environment is not external to us: every harm we do to the earth is a harm we do to ourselves."

"We will achieve a poison-free word by 2050... that is a committment we must make on this Environment Day."
