Well, do we have the event for you! Whether you’re in Toronto, Vancouver, Winnipeg or Edmonton, Jeff Rubin and David Suzuki are coming to a town near you!
When Jeff and David met in Vancouver this year, they realised their goals were the same. Jeff was approaching the issue of climate change and a sustainable future from an economic viewpoint, while Dr. Suzuki came to it from an ecological standpoint. And The End of Growth Eco Tour was born!
“The challenge with climate change is not how can we afford to reduce emissions, but how can we construct an economy that lives within the confines of nature’s boundaries,” said Dr. Suzuki. “The only thing we can change is what we create ourselves and the only thing we can manage is our own species. I’m looking forward to exploring these issues with Jeff Rubin, one of Canada’s most respected economic thinkers.”
“I am thrilled to be going on tour with David Suzuki, an icon to Canadians over the last four decades,” said Mr. Rubin. “This tour is a great opportunity to share my message to a whole new audience, at a time when it has never seemed more urgent to recognize the limits to growth and what sustainability really means for our economy. Sustainability isn’t just an abstract notion. It is the governing idea behind the kind of economy we need to foster.”
