3. Swaayam : A Journey to Empowerment: A UNDP-IKEA Foundation Partnership in India:

The film showcases how this initiative is transforming the lives of women in some of the most backward parts of India. The condition of women in these 3 districts exemplifies the gender inequities that prevail across India. Few women own assets such as land or cattle and do not have the skills or means to earn an income. Women are typically not allowed to venture outside their home without permission. The focus of this initiative is looking at women’s empowerment in 3 critical spheres – the economic, the social and the political and that when you engage women and empower them across all these spheres it has a synergistic impact that makes a substantial and lasting change in the lives of women, the lives of women, their families, their children and their communities. Based on the exciting potential for change displayed by these 50,000 women in eastern Uttar Pradesh, the UNDP IKEA Foundation partnership Swaayam is now being scaled up to 2.2 million women and their families in 4 states – Maharashtra, Gujarat, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh.

6. Fat or Skinny

The theme for “Fat or Skinny?” is the ‘Future of food and consumption’, the film was made for global broadcast, and was funded by IFAD, the United Nations branch for Small farmers with/for our partners TVE.org.

In 2010, a billion people were identified as obese, just as one billion people went hungry. The irony wasn’t lost on a Sri Lankan scientist who played on the UN’s MDG campaign by promoting the “Millennium Consumption Goals,” focusing attention on the 1.4 billion people in the richest countries who consume over 80 per cent of global food output. The “Western” diet – what many in developing countries aspire to – is bad for our waistlines and bad for the planet.

But is there a sustainable diet? With so many hungry people to feed, is it possible to eat in ways that are nutritionally and environmentally sustainable? Some promote a return to indigenous food systems and cultural knowledge.

In one Indian community, researchers discover that residents who eat predominantly indigenous food are much healthier than their neighbours. Is it too late to recapture some of this knowledge? What role do governments have to play in creating economic incentives for sustainable diets?

In this film we follow mother and campaigner Tulika Verma of UDAY Foundation as she tries to invent ‘Future Food’ for a country that knows how to cook and farm better than most. India has millennia-old farming traditions, and world-famous dishes – but also more malnourished people than any country in the world. And now there’s the threat of Western-style obesity too. Tulika says that’s because too many Indians believe ‘modern’ means ‘Western’ – like nylon shorts were once thought smarter than native cotton. She fears India will now succumb to the temptations of junk food, and they’re determined to stop it.
