The David Suzuki Foundation

Solutions are in our Nature

Linked with David Takayoshi Suzuki – Canada.

Since 1990, the David Suzuki Foundation has worked to find ways for society to live in balance with the natural world that sustains us. Focusing on four program areas – oceans and sustainable fishing, climate change and clean energy, sustainability, and the Nature Challenge - the Foundation uses science and education to promote solutions that conserve nature and help achieve sustainability within a generation … (about 1/2).

About 2/2:

  • Sustainability: Given our rich natural assets and the strong environmental values, Canada should be a world leader in sustainability. However, in a recent study comparing the environmental performance of Canada to other developed countries, we finished 29th out of 30. The Foundation’s report, Sustainability within a Generation, is a map to put Canada on the path to sustainability by the year 2030. To achieve this goal we work with different levels of government, business leaders, academics and the public to ensure that Canada adopts policies that reward activities that reduce waste and pollution, conserve energy and resources and protect our natural capital while maintaining our quality of life.
  • Oceans and Sustainable Fishing: Without water, life on Earth is not possible. And when our water systems are unhealthy, human beings suffer. Oceans, seas, lakes and rivers are our lifelines, providing us with food, recreation and great beauty. But overfishing, pollution and habitat loss are weakening these aquatic ecosystems. Staff biologists and researchers working on our oceans program focus on habitat conservation, fisheries management and sustainable aquaculture to conserve our precious water resources for future generations.
  • Climate Change and Clean Energy: Meeting humanity’s energy needs without dangerously interfering with the global climate system is one of the great challenges of the 21st century. For the sake of future generations, it is a challenge we must meet. Our climate change and clean energy program promotes sustainable solutions to our energy needs, from renewable sources like wind and solar power, to energy efficiency and improved public transportation. Adopting these solutions will help clean our air, improve our health, slow global warming and boost our economy.
  • Nature Challenge: After the Foundation researched the 10 most effective action individuals can take to protect nature, we wanted to put our findings into action. We invite Canadians to join David Suzuki’s Nature Challenge by visiting our website to learn about the 10 most effective actions that will help to protect nature. The Nature Challenge helps individuals make sustainable decisions about our homes, the food we eat, and how we get around cities. Sign up today!
