Dr Vandana Shiva’s event in Kansas City tonight is SOLD OUT! Her lecture, “Cultivating Diversity, Freedom and Hope,” will address the value of diversity in nature and in society, as well how the monoculture of the mind can destroy that diversity at every level. If you want to hear her message of local ownership and self-sufficiency in the production and distribution of food, KKFI 90.1 FM will be live broadcasting the event, so tune in from 7 pm to 9 pm.

Vandana’s visit to KC is hosted by Cultivate Kansas City, a locally-grown non-profit working to grow food, farms and communities for a healthy local food system, and by UMKC’s Environmental Studies Program and Department of Architecture, Urban Planning + Design.
