Jane Goodall spent time in Burlington in 2012 – she was a huge hit.

Burlington Green has been very good at bringing top name speakers to the city. Jane Goodall came in 2012 And was a huge success.

You can expect even more from Suzuki.

“We’re expecting tickets to sell very quickly. David Suzuki doesn’t come to this part of the province often,” says BurlingtonGreen executive director Amy Schnurr. “All summer we’ve heard how excited people are to hear him speak.”

“Grassroots people have been organizing in towns and cities like Hamilton and Burlington and asking our politicians to recognize our right to live in a healthy environment,” said David Suzuki, award-winning scientist, environmentalist and broadcaster. “For the first time in Canadian history, our elected members of parliament are coming around to the simple but powerful idea that Canadians deserve to drink safe water, breath fresh air and eat clean food.”

Both Hamilton and Burlington have passed declarations recognizing their residents’ right to live in a
healthy environment.


David Suzuki is a very engaging person. He dives right in and asks questions – younger audiences love him; adults revere him.

Before the public event, David Suzuki will join 700 Halton youth for a free all-day environmental leadership conference co-hosted by BurlingtonGreen and the David Suzuki Foundation.

“Youth have a vital role to play in the environmental rights movement,” says Peter Wood, national campaign manager for environmental rights at the David Suzuki Foundation. “Two years ago, students at Ancaster High School and Acton District High School self-organized and successfully lobbied their city Councillors to pass a declaration supporting the right to a healthy environment. By inspiring government to do the right thing, the youth of today can become the environmental leaders of tomorrow.”

Event information are available at or through the Burlington Performing Arts Centre box office.  The event doesn’t appear to be on the Performing Arts Centre web site – you might be better served to give them a call – 905-681-6000
