David Suzuki to host a climate change conversation at UBC tomorrow
Celebrated environmentalist and Vancouver legend David Suzuki will be stopping at the UBC Chan Centre tomorrow for a conversation about climate change. He will be joined by Stephen Lewis, a former Canadian ambassador to the United Nations.
The talk is part of their ‘Climate First’ tour. The two are travelling all across Canada in an effort to persuade voters to make climate change their number 1 election issue. They will be stopping in 5 Canadian cities to try and get their point across.
The talk will largely centre around the more pressing issues of climate change, like severely cut greenhouse gas emissions. Suzuki points to a mountain of research stressing the importance of action against climate change. It’s a bummer, but it needs to be heard.
Suzuki likens climate change to a ‘war’. So, it needs to supercede political differences and bring Canadians together in order to make a difference. If you’d like to hear what he has to say, make sure you head over to UBC tomorrow!
When: Friday, September 20
