Vandana Shiva, author of Staying Alive: Women, Ecology and Development in India, and Coordinator of the Research Foundation of Science and Ecology in India, says: “Undoing the lessons of development is the first step – not creating another set of new rules that call themselves sustainable development.” This is her prescient speech on the topic of Grassroots Strategies for Our Global Future, at the Public Interest Economic Law Conference, in Eugene, Oregon, in 1990.
