The Girl Who Silenced The World For 5 Minutes


Description:

The Girl Who Silenced The World For 5 Minutes.

Severn Cullis-Suzuki (born November 30, 1979 in Vancouver, Canada) is an environmental activist, speaker, television host and author. Born to writer Tara Elizabeth Cullis and geneticist and environmental activist David Suzuki, she has spoken around the world about environmental issues, urging listeners to define their values, act with the future in mind, and take individual responsibility.

Cullis-Suzuki was born and raised in Vancouver, Canada. While attending Lord Tennyson Elementary School in French Immersion, at the age of nine, she founded the Environmental Children's Organization, a group of children dedicated to learning and teaching other kids about environmental issues. In 1992, at the age of 12, Cullis-Suzuki raised money with members of ECO, to attend the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro. Along with group members Michelle Quigg, Vanessa Suttie, and Morgan Geisler, Cullis-Suzuki presented environmental issues from a youth perspective at the summit, where she was applauded for a speech to the delegates. In 1993, she was honoured in the United Nations Environment Programme's Global 500 Roll of Honour. In 1993, Doubleday published her book Tell the World (ISBN 0-385-25422-9), a 32-page book of environmental steps for families.

Cullis-Suzuki graduated from Yale University in 2002 with a B.Sc. in ecology and evolutionary biology. After Yale, Cullis-Suzuki spent two years traveling. Cullis-Suzuki co-hosted Suzuki's Nature Quest, a children's television series that aired on the Discovery Channel in 2002.

In early 2002, she helped launch an Internet-based think tank called The Skyfish Project. As a member of Kofi Annan's Special Advisory Panel, she and members of the Skyfish Project brought their first project, a pledge called the "Recognition of Responsibility", to the World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg in August 2002. The Skyfish Project disbanded in 2004 as Cullis-Suzuki turned her focus back to school and enrolled in a graduate program at the University of Victoria to study ethnobotany under Nancy Turner.

    i have news for you...the UN does not actually give a toss about ending poverty.....they thrive on creating poverty and making money carrying the money wheelbarrow that is wealth transfer.take a closer look at the actions of the IMF and see what i am talking about....there is a good book on the subject called 'confessions of an economic hit-man'...read it or at least familiarize yourself with its narrative.the UN is corrupt.....its set up to keep people in poverty. global warming is simply scientific hokey-pokey used as an excuse for the IMF to be able to tax us directly through carbon offset taxes....a tax on human life.so hug your trees if you must but if you want to end poverty lets look at the real problems.....and they solutions will never come by the hands of the biggest culprits.sorry if my opinion is unpopular....live with it.
