Older adults are the fastest-growing age group in Canada. Together with our members and partners, RTOERO advocates for critical policy improvements to address urgent needs now and create a more secure and compassionate future for everyone. One of the three key issues that we are addressing is Environmental Stewardship – the responsible use of resources, conservation, protecting our air, land, and water. Improving in all areas is critical to a sustainable future. Individuals, companies, industry groups and governments all have a role to play in environmental stewardship. We need to maintain the viability of our ecosystems for ourselves, our children, and grandchildren.

Dr. David Suzuki is an award-winning scientist, environmentalist, author, and broadcaster. We were grateful to watch a Vibrant Voices webinar on January 25, 2022, with Dr. Suzuki as our featured speaker. In his impassioned address, he shared a compelling look at the state of the environment and offered insights to help humanity live well while protecting our environment. A record number of 1300+ viewers from Canada, the U.S. and Europe were mesmerized.


As the World is BURNING UP with record temperatures being set in North America and Europe in 2022, many of us are oblivious to the CLEAR and PRESENT DANGER to our planet and to the livelihood of people around the world. Our grandchildren cannot VOTE yet. We must do so on their behalf and hold POLITICIANS and BIG CORPORATIONS accountable for securing the future for our grandchildren.

A synopsis of Dr. Suzuki’s presentation and key takeaways can be found in the March 2022 edition of STONY Bridges. Click HERE to view it.
