Severn Cullis Suzuki, Eco Warrior.
I have read with increased awe about this young lady, who has been campaigning for Eco issues/Environmental issues for practically her whole life, beginning when she set out with a group of friends in the streets around her home in Bernard Avenue, Toronto, Canada to raise awareness to issues to do with animal extinction. They made placards to say, ‘Save the Animals’.
Later she and five of her best friends set up the group Eco, an environmental task-force, to campaign for justice for the planet and its eco-systems. At 12 years of age..!!!!
She flew to Rio to the earth summit and you can watch what she said there. Click here.
She sat on the U.N’s Earth charter commission and several other important panels that were supposedly seeking answers and ways to address the issues facing the planet. She cycled with friends across Canada to raise awareness about climate change, and also continued getting an education in subjects that would support her awareness and commitment to seeing real and lasting ecological solutions to these problems. She had earned a degree in Ecology and evolutionary biology amongst other subjects, to set her place as one of the most formidable young campaigners for both ecological issues, and those of global extinction.
She continues to campaign and work for her goals to be reached and what a fine young lady she has become as she continues to inspire youths and environmental campaigners and peaceful warriors alike. Please read all about her and her aims and watch the inspirational videos here.
