Here at the Pacific Parklands Foundation, we proudly work with a diverse group of volunteers, park partners, staff, government organizations, community groups and other non-profit organizations.
Specifically, this has included collaboration with the David Suzuki Foundation.
The David Suzuki Foundation works with government, business and individuals to conserve the environment. They have a reputation for providing science-based education in addition to their advocacy and policy work. As an organization, their top goals are to protect our climate, transform the economy, protect nature, reconnect with nature and build community. In other words, they have goals aligned with many other environmental non-profits, which is why we at PPF have previously been able to collaborate with the organization.
Recently, however, you may have heard on the news or via the various social media outlets that David Suzuki has made a big decision. He will be stepping down from the board of directors of the David Suzuki Foundation.
I could detail the reasons why here, but I think this decision is better explained to the public by David Suzuki himself. So instead, I will share a link that I encourage all our readers to check out. Whether you agree or disagree with his decision and the issues surrounding it, it never hurts to be informed.
