Aboriginal Chamber of Commerce to Host Prominent Broadcaster and Environmental Activist in March
Following a series of sold-out events, the Aboriginal Chamber of Commerce (ACC) is announcing that it will be hosting prominent Canadian scientist, broadcaster and environmental activist, Dr. David Suzuki at an event on March 12, 2019, at the Fort Garry Hotel in Winnipeg.
“The Aboriginal Chamber of Commerce is continuing to build on an exciting year,” said Darrell Brown, ACC Board Chair, “We are committed to hosting events for our membership and the community at large that not only celebrate the success stories in Indigenous business and economic development that we are seeing all over Manitoba, but that will also spark discussion and add value to the broader conversations we are all having.”
Dr. David Suzuki will be speaking on The Challenge of the 21st Century: Setting the Bottomline in the Anthropocene, which will focus on the combined impacts of technology, globalization, and urbanization on not only the health of the environment, but also the health of the relationship between people and the planet, and how our values and worldview shapes the way we see the world, and ultimately, how we treat it.
“Traditional people refer to the Earth as their “Mother” and tell us we are made of the four sacred elements: Earth, Air, Fire, and Water,” says Dr. Suzuki, “Science is verifying this ancient wisdom, and as biological beings, we need to talk about our place in the web of life, and our place in the world, so that we and the rest of life can continue to flourish.”
The event is open to everyone, but seating is limited. Past ACC events, featuring prominent Indigenous business leaders and the plans for the former Kapyong Barracks which is set to become Winnipeg’s largest urban reserve, have sold out. Those interested in attending the event featuring Dr. Suzuki in March are encouraged to secure their seats early.
