David Suzuki, Peter Garrett

David Suzuki has been at the forefront of the environmental movement for decades - long before global warming made its way into our daily consciousness. David Suzuki, perhaps more than anyone else, has been responsible for bringing environmental issues to a broad global audience. He’s dedicated, hugely knowledgeable and totally inspiring. Tonight we find out what makes him tick and keeps him motivated. We also discover that it’s not all gloom and doom and that we can each make a difference to the health of our planet. David Suzuki will be in conversation with Peter Garrett, MP for Kingsford Smith.
