Sharing the passion: a conversation with David Suzuki

Dec 19 2017, 5:49 am

Award-winning scientist, and one of Canada’s leading environmental figures, David Suzuki returns to host the 52nd season of CBC’s The Nature of Things this fall. In addition to our earlier story today, we sat down for an on Camera interview with the environmental legend himself. Suzuki, who is hosting the show for the 33rd year, has no shortage of stories to tell when it comes to the world.

“There’s no end to discovery of new things about the world around,” he says during his interview with VancityBuzz.

Suzuki holds 25 honourary degrees in Canada, the United States, and Australia. He has been an inspiration for generations, and continues to spread his wealth of knowledge and passion to others.

“This is the most important time in your life,” says Suzuki on elders. “You’ve got a lifetime of experiences. Have you learned anything from that lifetime to pass on to future generations? I certainly have.”

As a young girl, I watched The Nature of Things. Today, I still do. And there is a reason for that. Suzuki’s passion and enthusiasm are contagious and unparalleled.
