Severn Cullis-Suzuki – Remember the Future
Severn Cullis-Suzuki discusses our responsibilities toward future generations; how to heal our disconnection from nature and each other; and how to draw from the best of ancient traditions and modern innovation to build a sustainable future. Cullis-Suzuki, daughter of David Suzuki, graduated from Yale with a B.S. in ecology and evolutionary biology, and is on track to outpace her father as an activist. She founded a children’s environmental group at age 9, addressed the Rio Summit at age 12, and hasn’t stopped since, starting several groups and projects and becoming a dynamic, luminous light in a new generation of eco-leaders. Introduction by Nina Simons, Co-Founder and President of Bioneers.
This speech was given at the 2003 Bioneers National Conference.
