Printer-friendly versionSend by emailPDF version

Research from the world’s leading scientists is clear: We have just 11 years to cut greenhouse gas emissions in half and avoid the most frightening aspects of climate change. The time for action is now.

On Saturday, Sept. 14, David Suzuki, Stephen Lewis and Buffy Sainte-Marie will speak at the University of Toronto’s Convocation Hall -- the first stop on David and Stephen’s national Climate First tour to bring attention to the climate crisis before Canadians go to the polls this October.

You can purchase tickets now to hear David, Stephen and Buffy’s message of urgency and hope, with a special focus on helping Canadian youth navigate the challenges of the world they will inherit.

In David’s words:

“Like two silverback gorillas, Stephen and I have a life’s worth of experience and knowledge. Our responsibility now is sharing our wisdom with a new generation, and giving young people the tools they’ll need to carry it on.”
#carryiton is an important theme of this tour. “Carry It On” is a Buffy Sainte-Marie song that captures the urgency of the climate crisis, and which Buffy has generously contributed to help support the tour’s success.
Join David, Stephen and Buffy in putting the #climatefirst in this important election.
