Description

Whether it’s addressing the World Trade Organization to challenge globalization, riding horses along the Enbridge Pipeline route to battle big oil, or setting new demonstration records to demand action on climate change, women leaders Vandana Shiva, Winona LaDuke, and Osprey Orielle Lake are challenging the outdated approaches of the past.

During the 2014 Where We Go From Here conference, these three leaders in the sustainability movement gathered together to speak with Carla Goldstein, cofounder of the Omega Women's Leadership Center, about the unique role women play redefining our collective relationship to nature.

Get inspired to honor the wisdom of elders, live from the heart, and take action in you own unique way.
