Iranian scholar Ramin Jahanbegloo interviews one of the most well-known environment activists of our time, Vandana Shiva, and in the process, addresses issues ranging from nature and spiritualism, the Chipko Movement and the birth of Navdanya, 'earth democracy', and 'seed globalization' to the functioning of neoliberal paradigm in India, swadeshi and village governance, corruption in India, the future of Indian farmers, and the relevance of Gandhi in the twenty-first century.

Ramin Jahanbegloo, well-known Iranian philosopher, is a professor of political science and a research fellow in the Centre for Ethics at University of Toronto and a board member of PEN Canada. Vandana Shiva, philosopher, environmental activist, and author, is well-known for conceptualizing 'ecofeminism'. In 1982, she initiated Navdanya, a programme of the Research Foundation for Science, Technology and Ecology (RFSTE), a participatory research initiative to provide direction and support to environmental activism. Recipient of the Right Livelihood Award, she was also decorated with the Global 500 Award of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), and the Earth Day International Award of the United Nations (UN).
