Show Notes

First we hear from Ajay Rastogi who works closely with the women of Majkhali village in foothills of the Himalayas, in Uttarakhand, India. He set up the Vrikshalaya Centre there to be a meeting place and knowledge hub for the villagers and other communities in the Himalayan lowlands, as well as foreign visitors and homestay guests interested in more meaningful forms of sustainability. 

Then Nadia Bergamini speaks about facing the growing global challenges of population growth and climate change through agro-biodiversity. Nadia works at Bioversity International and runs an organic, biodynamic farm together outside Rome. Nadia collaborates with the Satoyama Initiative, helping communities all over the world develop strategies to strengthen their social and ecological resilience, whilst maintaining the diversity of the landscapes’ species and varieties.

Reetu Sogani is a passionate women rights activist. She has become known around the world for her work with grass roots communities, building awareness levels and capacities for a stronger foundation of local knowledge systems and practices, across the Middle Himalayan ranges and other parts of India. Reetu has addressed the International Women’s Earth and Climate Summit in New York as one of the 100 women global leaders from across the world.
