“Making peace with the earth was always an ethical and ecological imperative. It has now become a survival imperative for our species…People’s need for food and water can be met only if nature’s capacity to provide food and water is protected. Defending the rights of Mother Earth is therefore the most important human rights and social justice struggle. It is the broadest peace movement of our times.” – Dr. Vandana Shiva

Our activities are directly related to climate change, loss of species, and increasingly, global conflict over basic resources like energy, mineral rights, and even water.
