A leading Indian environmental activist and feminist, Vandana Shiva received the Alternative Nobel Prize in 1993 for "placing women and ecology at the heart of the debate on modern development".

In her recent essay, 1 % : reprendre le pouvoir face à la toute-puissance des riches (Rue de l’échiquier, 2019) (FR), she examines how the so-called « philanthropy » has become the primary means of bypassing democratic structures, preventing diversity and imposing totalitarian ideas.

On the occasion of her visit to France, four Sciences Po students will ask her questions on her views on feminism, ecology and ecofeminism in a lively discussion led by Henri Landes, lecturer and member of the Climate Action: Make It Work initiative at Sciences Po.

This event is organised by Sciences Po Gender Studies Programme PRESAGE, Éditions rue de l'Échiquier (FR) and SOL Association (FR).
