Four Speeches, Radio and Magazine Coverage, and an Upcoming Interview with Ronald Wright…

I’m about to have a very busy week, with four public speaking events — and tomorrow, Monday September 12, is particularly daffy.

At 9:00 tomorrow I do a half-hour interview with Jordi Morgan on News 95.7 in Halifax. Topics include The Green Interview, the story behind the end of my Halifax Sunday Herald column, and the Halifax municipal council. All this results from a very flattering Q&A piece about me by Trevor Adams in the current issue of Halifax Magazine, which you can see here:

Then, tomorrow night at 7:30 I present my TEDx talk on “Bhutan and the Pursuit of Gross National Happiness” on behalf of the Ecology Action Centre at the Bloomfield Centre. That one’s sold out.

On Tuesday evening, at 7:00 I speak at the Friends of Nature AGM at the St. Stephen’s Community Hall in Chester.

On Thursday evening I give a lecture on the history of environmentalism in Nova Scotia, 1970 to now (as I remember it) at the Dalhousie University’s College of Sustainability. That’s in Ondaatje Hall in the Marion McCain Building, at 7:00.

And finally, I’m speaking at the celebration of UNESCO’s designation of the Bras d’Or Lakes watershed as a UNESCO Man and the Biosphere Reserve, in Iona. That’s on Saturday, September 17, at 3:00 PM. More details about the designation are on the association’s website,

And… stand by for a great interview with Ronald Wright, author of such books as Stolen Continents and A Short History of Progress, to be posted on the site in the next few days!
