Bringing Eco Values into Canadian Conciousness  

As the former CEO of Mountain Equipment Co-op,Canada’s most popular outdoor gear retailer, and now as CEO of the David Suzuki Foundation, Peter Robinson has often played the role of uniting environmental perspectives with business, government and the public interests. So what is effective in getting business and government to take heed of environmental priorities? What can all of us do to get environmental issues on the agenda? Peter will provide case studies and stories about what worked, what didn’t and what to keep in mind going forward.
