Stephen Lewis and Severn Cullis-Suzuki, Brendon Brazier: Panel on sustainability (Oct 29th, 1pm at the SUB)

“Students for Sustainability” are hosting a panel discussion with one of my favourite speakers (Stephen Lewis), joined by Severn Cullis-Suzuki and Brendan Brazier.

Severn is David Suzuki’s daughter, but her most famous moment was the brilliant speech she gave to the UN at the young age of 12 (see below).

Now, as we speak, the Students for Sustainability’s website is down, but I’m assuming the panel is still a go. If so, it’s definitely worth checking out. Anyway, details are as follows:

Wednesday, October 29th, SUB auditorium, 1pm to 4pm.

And the blurb reads:

“The Students for Sustainability Tour is a joint pan-Canadian tour put on by the Canadian Federation of Students and the Sierra Youth Coalition. In addition to the speakers’ portion of the Tour, it will also feature an exhibition throughout the day to include local community and on-campus organizations, including the UBC chapter of the Sierra Youth Coalition, tabling to raise awareness of campus and
community environmental and social justice initiatives. The purpose of the Tour is to give students the knowledge and local tools necessary to get involved in sustainability initiatives. All speaking events are free for students.”
