Details: Join internationally renowned authors and environmentalists David Suzuki and Peter Wohlleben for a unique celebration of the natural world. Moderated by CBC’s Gregor Craigie, this special event is a rare opportunity to see the two master storytellers together in conversation. Sharing the stage for the first time, the duo will offer insight into the wonders of old growth forests, questions about society’s changing connection to nature, and thoughts on our shared future.
Both authors have written numerous books about the natural world, including the acclaimed The Hidden Life of Trees and The Inner Life of Animals (Wohlleben) and Tree: A Life Story and The Sacred Balance (Suzuki). They can speak to the role art can play in activism and the potential for literature to create lasting change.
A Q&A and book signing with the authors will follow the event.
David Suzuki is an internationally renowned geneticist and environmentalist and a recipient of UNESCO’s Kalinga Prize for the Popularization of Science and the 2009 Right Livelihood Award. Host of the long-running CBC television program The Nature of Things, he is also the author of more than fifty books.
Peter Wohlleben is the acclaimed author of the international bestsellers The Hidden Life of Trees and The Inner Life of Animals. He spent over twenty years working for the forestry commission in Germany before leaving to put his ecological ideas into practice. Today he manages a forest academy and an environmentally friendly woodland in Germany, where he is working for the return of primeval forests.
Gregor Craigie has hosted On The Island since 2007. Before that he worked as a radio reporter in the Kootenays, a Producer on The Current, and a TV legislative reporter. And before that Gregor worked in London at the BBC World Service for three years and still has fond memories of drinking "bog standard" tea to stay awake on the late-night shift. Gregor now wakes up every weekday morning with a strong cup of coffee to host Victoria's most popular radio program. For rest and relaxation, he rides his bike and runs after his three young sons.
