On 19 June 2012, Shumei International and Navdanya officially launched Visions of the Living Earth in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil during the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, Rio+20. Shumei International and Navdanya partnered to create Visions of the Living Earth, a limited edition collection of beautiful essays from key individuals on their vision of the living planet along with stunning photographs of nature. Contributors include Maurice Strong, Dr. Vandana Shiva, Pablo Solón, Ela Gandhi, Alice Waters, and Wes Jackson among many others. The book also recognizes the Universal Declaration of the Rights of Mother Earth, which was drafted in Bolivia during the World People’s Conference in 2010 as a call to protect the earth by recognizing its rights. Visions of the Living Earth was created with the aim of inspiring a shift in attitudes and behaviors to support lifestyles, economies, agriculture, and industries in harmony with nature, and bold action in Rio+20 and onwards. The aim of the book is to support the recognition of and gratitude for the life forces and ecosystems that sustain us and to help the human community gain a better understanding of the Rights of Mother Earth and our interconnectedness with the whole web of life.
