The Nature Challenge is a similar campaign that is tailored to individuals, with 10 simple steps that most people can take to re-establish our connection with nature and live more sustainably.

Whistler Mayor Hugh O’Reilly, as well as the mayors of Squamish and Vancouver, were among the first British Columbians to sign up last fall to take the Nature Challenge. The Nature Challenge now boasts 150,000 participants.

Dr. Suzuki finished his presentation with a call for people to get involved, to download the Sustainability within a Generation platform from the foundation’s Web site and sign up for the Nature Challenge.

Said Dr. Suzuki: "If we’re serious about bringing about change, then we’re going to have to be the ones to drive it."

Dr. Suzuki’s presentation will be broadcast on Whistler Cable 6 starting today (Friday) at 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. Check the listings on page 56 for more times.
