XLRI held the 7th Dr. Verghese Kurien Memorial Oration on January 16, where environmental activist Ashish Kothari was the speaker. He shared his thoughts on Eco-Swaraj: Recovery towards Justice and Sustainability.
Organised under the aegis of Fr Arrupe Centre for Ecology and Sustainability (FACES), XLRI, in memory of the founder of AMUL, Verghese Kurien, the oration aims to provide a platform to listen to and learn from thought leaders, social entrepreneurs, development sector professionals and policymakers who have made a significant contribution to the idea of an empowered, prosperous and sustainable society.
“One has to be respectful of nature and recognise that other species and earth as a whole also have inherent rights, not just because they’re useful to human beings. The principles of Swaraj set out in Gandhi’s texts have never been fully realised. Yet, they continue to resonate through Indian civic culture to this day in the country’s grassroots environmental movement. Recognising that living harmoniously with nature is central to Swaraj. Eco-Swaraj is not a movement in itself, but it describes patterns. Juxtaposing Eco-Swaraj with COVID-19 along with other ongoing global crises such as climate, biodiversity, and inequality will provide us an opportunity to rethink what development should really mean,” Kothari said in his address.
