Scientist, broadcaster and author David Suzuki looks at the role humans have played in shaping the planet. People are undermining the very life-support systems of air, water, soil, photosynthesis and biodiversity. We must look to biology to find a strategy for survival, according to Suzuki in the 2014 Milton K. Wong Lecture, Canada's premier lecture on multiculturalism sponsored by the Laurier Institution, UBC Continuing Studies and CBC Radio One.

The annual Milton K. Wong lecture promotes dialogue and debate on multiculturalism, cultural diversity and pluralism.

The David Suzuki Foundation collaborates with Canadians from all walks of life, including government and business, to conserve the environment and find solutions that will create a sustainable Canada through science-based research, education and policy work.

The David Suzuki Foundation is launching a cross Canada tour (Fall of 2014) to begin a public conversation on the inclusion of environmental rights in Canada's constitution. There are several publications to help inform the discussion. You can find them here: Right To A Healthy Environment Publications
