Felt very lucky to get to see Dr Vandana Shiva speak at the Festival of Dangerous Ideas at the Sydney Opera House. I hope they'll upload what was an inspiring, revitalising talk that ended on the wise summation "big = small, small = big," an ethos I think is at the core of so many of the projects I've been lucky enough to work on. This article is a really good outline of her critique of economic growth, a good intro to the Growth = Poverty discussion.
Was thrilled to pick up her latest book, and give her a copy of ours, after the talk. Her smile was so illuminating - I think she liked it!
