Presented by The Vancouver Writers Fest
Geoff Dembicki, Chris Turner
Moderator: John Vaillant
Today’s young people may be the first generation to experience the doomsday impacts of climate change, and the last to be able to do something about them. Geoff Dembicki, a sustainability writer, travelled to Silicon Valley, Canada’s tar sands, Washington, Wall Street and the Paris climate talks to find out if millennials should hope or despair. Chris Turner, one of Canada’s leading speakers on sustainability, takes us onto the streets of Fort McMurray, and shows the myriad ways the oil sands impact our lives, for both good and bad. Young people can play an even more crucial role in shaping the planet’s health after paying attention to these two informed and passionate writers.
