Hes been described as the greatest environmentalist of our age and now David Suzuki (pictured) is heading to the North Coast for two lively forums as part of his final Australian speaking tour.
His appearance at Lismore City Hall on Wednesday, October 11, is a fundraiser for TROPO (the Tweed Regional Organic Producers Organisation) which runs the weekly Rainbow Region Organic Market every Tuesday in Lismore. The market promotes sustainable living and believes in supporting local farmers rather than multinational corporations a philosophy Suzuki himself has lived and breathed for decades.
If you cant make that date, David is also speaking at the Byron Bay High School Auditorium the evening before (Tuesday, October 10).
At both events David will talk about his life and introduce his new book David Suzuki: The Autobiography. This is the story of his remarkable passion for the planet, which he shared with the world through his research, his writings, his broadcasting and above all through his life and the way he lives it.
Davids books will be on sale before and after the event and he will be available to sign copies.
This visit is the last chance for people to get up close and personal with this highly respected and intelligent environmental campaigner and voice heartfelt concerns and beliefs in a passionate and lively forum.
Our little planet never ceases to amaze me, he wrote recently. We keep kicking the stuffing out of her and she keeps finding a way to bounce back.
But he also warns that it cant go on forever.
Our planet may have a remarkable capacity to heal, but theres only so much she can take.
