Temple of Understanding celebrating our 61st Anniversary in 2021
In this critical time we find ourselves presented with the privilege to carry each other, our community, and society forward into the next step of human evolution.
The TOU Discussion Series provides us with the forum and opportunity to engage our leaders of this new world with ideas and questions to catalyze widespread change. It is up to each one of us to step up and help strategize how to amplify the impact of their most crucial initiatives!
Please join our exclusive 90 minute online sessions with international Changemakers.
Register for the event and join us each month for an informative talk and lively discussion. Each month we invite a speaker or small panel to go deeper on the issues of environmental justice.
Registered participants are able to engage with our speakers by asking questions relevant to the discussion topic.
"Regeneration, for me, is recognizing that we live by the laws of Mother Nature. We live by her generosity…Regeneration is food democracy for the soil organisms, food democracy for biodiversity, food democracy so that no one goes hungry, food democracy so that food doesn't become the biggest reason for climate disaster, and pandemic."
World-renowned activist, scientist, influential author and food sovereignty advocate, Dr. Vandana Shiva, calls on citizens worldwide to protect ourselves and our planet. Shiva speaks with urgency about the social and ecological brink of extinction and the desperate need to deepen our democracies, reclaim our commons and regenerate the Earth.
Vandana Shiva who trained as a quantum physicist, now addresses the intersection of science, environmental policy and social justice in her work and books. Dr. Shiva founded Navdanya in 1991, a national movement to protect the diversity and integrity of living resources. She is recipient of the Right Livelihood Award for her work in placing women and ecology at the center of international development. Authoring more than 300 papers in leading scientific journals, and more than 20 books, Shiva is a powerful voice on ecological biodiversity and social justice.
Join us for an exclusive online discussion focussing on the global food crisis with Dr. Vandana Shiva moderated by Grove Harris, United Nations representative for the Temple of Understanding.
