Sadhvi Bhagawatiji spoke at a beautiful program at the UN organized by the UN Alliance of Civilizations, Global Citizen Forum and United Peace Federation on Sustainable Development.  This program brought together so many people, from so many different fields — government, UN, NGO, media, news — all of whom are working to bring about a world that truly embodies sustainability.

In Indian culture we are told “Vasudhaiv Kutumbakam,” the world is one family. If we’re all a family then clearly none of us has any right to more than our individual personal share of food, water, resources, energy, etc. Every person on earth, then, has equal right to the resources, as everyone in a family has equal right to the food in the fridge or water from the tap. How can we, the “developed” and “developing” nations, ensure that our development is not in a vacuum, but rather takes all of our world family into consideration?
