Description

 

On Friday, November 22 at 7pm, join Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies in Millbrook, New York for a presentation by Dr. Bruce Lourie, one of Canada’s most influential environmental leaders.

Drawing on three decades of work on the frontlines of plastic pollution, climate change, and biodiversity protection, Lourie will discuss the steps needed to achieve sustainability.

Lourie has been instrumental in the creation of more than a dozen organizations that have advanced sustainability in Canada and abroad, and initiated the largest climate action in North America — phasing out coal in Ontario.

He is the author of the international bestseller Slow Death by Rubber Duck, the president of The Ivey Foundation – a private charitable foundation focusing on environmental policy change, and a senior fellow at Queen’s University. Registration is required. Seating is first come first served.
