The existing model of economic development and globalisation is destroying democracy and ecosystems.

The physicist, activist and and icon of the movement critical of globalization Vandana Shiva explains the concept of Earth Democracy: it protects the environmental processes that secure the foundation of all life and the fundamental human rights that represent the basis for the right to live. Earth Democracy is based on recognition of and respect for all living beings and all peoples.
