Dr. David Suzuki is a world-renowned scientist, broadcaster, author, activist and co-founder of the David Suzuki Foundation. He is best known as the host of The Nature of Things – a landmark television series with over 50 seasons, the longest running on CBC – and Suzuki has been host since 1979. David has written or co-authored more than 50 books, nearly 20 of which are for children.
Now, in his 80s, Suzuki is undeniably one of Canada’s most prominent and influential Canadians, and is indeed an elder in his own right. Throughout his career, he has pushed the boundaries of how science operates in society, and has always had his eye on creating a healthy future for all species. His dedication and commitment to the earth, society and media is recognized nationally and internationally.
After the screening of ‘Beyond Climate’, there will be a live on-stage conversation between Drs. Ian Mauro (director) and David Suzuki (narrator) where they discuss climate change and what we can do to protect ourselves and the planet.
