The grand prize winner of the Fukuoka Prize 2012, Dr. Vandana Shiva has been inducted into the 4th Kyoto Earth Hall of Fame.

The event widely sends out message from Kyoto to the rest of the world that all people, regions and countries should be dedicated in solving the environmental problems that we face globally.

Dr. Shiva alarmed the Western perspective imposed upon environmental, agricultural and food issues and advocated the values and social structures rooted in traditions, as well as the conscience towards the environment, which is why she was chosen one of the inductees of the 4th Kyoto Earth Hall of Fame.
