Inspiring Change for a Sustainable Future Symposium    Sat Oct 22, 2022, Toronto, ON

Inspiring Change for a Sustainable Future Symposium
Saturday, October 22, 2022, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
Toronto Botanical Garden, 777 Lawrence Avenue East, Toronto, ON

Being sustainable just makes sense.
Sustainability can improve our health and well-being and help create a better future for us all.

Sustainability matters, and that is why it is the focus of the Garden Club of Toronto’s first public symposium "Inspiring Change for a Sustainable Future."

Our day-long symposium will explore four main themes: the interconnectedness of the web of life, the intrinsic value of nature, our role as guardians and stewards of the earth, and the health benefits of being connected to nature.

Diana Beresford-Kroeger is a world renowned author, medical biochemist, botanist and climate change visionary. As our keynote speaker, she will be joined by:

• Carolyn King, Order of Canada recipient and creator of Moccasin Project

• Isaac Crosby, Teaches Indigenous Agriculture Techniques at University of Toronto

• Sarah Winterton, Carolinian Canada

• Sundaura Alford-Purvis, Society of Organic Urban Land Care

Other features of the day include an Art Show featuring creations by Garden Club of Toronto members and plenty of opportunity to network with speakers, panelists and community allies.

Tickets are $45 plus service charge and include a box lunch.
