Spotlight Session: David Suzuki

If David Suzuki had to sum up all that he has learned in a life packed with scientific and environmental research and activism, what would he say? In his new book, The Legacy, one of the planet’s preeminent elders explains how we arrived where we are today, and presents his vision for a better future.

At this special event, David Suzuki shares his accumulated wisdom, a snapshot of the most important messages formulated throughout his life.

In partnership with the Melbourne International Arts Festival, the Matter of Life and Death series of events focuses on some of the big issues in life, art and ideas.
