On October 24 the Green Rights tour will be coming to Thunder Bay. For the last four years executive producer and host Silver Donald Cameron and his colleagues at www.TheGreenInterview.com have been working on a big multi-media project on environmental rights called GreenRights (www.GreenRights.com).
About the project: The right to breathe. The right to clean water. The right to wholesome food. Air, water, food – these are the sources of life. Without them, we die. And in most nations – more than 180 nations, in fact – citizens are legally entitled to these essential elements of life.
But not in Canada or the United States. And that’s what the Green Rights multi-media project is all about: the human right to a healthy environment, and Mother Nature’s right to be respected and protected. The citizenship of North Americans is hobbled because we don’t have these green rights. Canadians and Americans literally don’t know what they’re missing. So we’re telling the dramatic stories of how citizens use those rights in other countries – and are fighting for them here. Green rights are among humanity’s most powerful tools for protecting and repairing the natural world.
In October, Cameron will be promoting the film and book with his wife, Marjorie Simmons – and her new book – with a trans-continental tour by motorhome. The tour will stop at universities across and be financed by film screenings and guest lectures coupled with book sales.
In Thunder Bay, the tour will include an event or two on campus, potentially a book reading, followed by a screening in the evening.
