SS Forum: Peter Robinson, CEO of David Suzuki Foundation & Former CEO of MEC

May 26 @ 7:30 pm - 9:15 pm

$15 - 2017 Forum Members; $20 - General

The recent provincial election saw the BC Green Party triple its presence in the BC legislature – including a local win for Green MLA Adam Olsen. What could this major shift mean for the future of the province, environment and economy? How can the economy and environmentalism work together?

The Salt Spring Forum hosts a very timely discussion with Peter Robinson – CEO of the David Suzuki Foundation, and former CEO of Mountain Equipment Co-op and BC Housing – to discuss these stirring questions and more.

Peter Robinson began his career by working as a park ranger in wilderness areas throughout BC, where he was decorated for bravery by the Governor General of Canada. He has also done humanitarian work with the Red Cross, and currently serves on the Board of Imagine Canada, an organization that supports charities across the country.

Learn about the history of environmental activism in BC, how we can work together for a more sustainable future, and much, much more with the truly remarkable Peter Robinson!
