“In today’s world, economics
is separated from, and opposed to, both ecological processes and basic
needs”, writes the Indian scientist and thought leader Vandana Shiva.
As a fierce critic of industrial monoculture, which evades all democratic
participation and control, she is one of those essential voices who call
for a radical change in thinking. That is, one that even questions the
apparently most fundamental agreements. In contrast, there is the belief
in the feasibility of technological solutions for anything and everything,
even if these obviously severely compromise our natural foundations of
life. So do we go on hoping for a “world machine” or will
flowers save humankind in the end?
Between 5th and 16th of June 2013, the
