Created specially for Vikalp Sangam and Kalpavriksh
In the face of irreversible ecological damage, social and economic inequality, and other crises, there are exciting alternative initiatives for meeting human needs across India. These emphasise direct political and economic democracy, social justice and equality, cultural diversity and knowledge commons, and ecological wisdom, based on ethics of solidarity, freedom, rights and responsibilities. The Vikalp Sangam process (www.vikalpsangam.org) attempts to bring these initiatives together for learning, collaboration, advocacy, and collective visioning. This short video introduces the context of Vikalp Sangam.
