A powerpoint presentation and conversation with sustainable systems designer, Nirmala Nair.

As the world teeters towards collapse, the power and common sense of ordinary people are being eroded by a media designed to evoke anger, apathy and violence. Indeed, the cultural practices we need most to survive are steadily being consumed by the machinations of a global corporate elite.

Throughout the world, Nirmala has witnessed that an important way to confront global forces of destruction is by restoring the local culture of healthy food. She says, it is the seeds we save and the forest we preserve that will become the safe havens of a sustainable future. Join Nirmala Nair to re-gather, re-skill, and re-imagine a world where our conscience is free.

“True transformation lies not in big policy battles but in the consciousness that is evolving as the chaos deepens... it is time to step into that well of consciousness.”  ~ Nirmala Nair

Born in Kerala, India, and currently based in Cape Town, South Africa, sustainable systems designer, Nirmala Nair has worked most recently for Bhutanese farmers developing climate resilient water-management systems.
