When it comes to global environmentalism, one name stands above the rest: David Suzuki. The Canadian icon visits TRU as part of the Beyond Climate international film tour.
Directed by University of Winnipeg associate professor Ian Mauro with narration by Suzuki, Beyond Climate ties with the sustainable movement that has changed TRU’s campus for the better over for the past decade.
Tickets for students are $10. Staff and public tickets are $20. Ticket sales are limited to six per person. Event planners expect the 700 tickets to sell quickly. Buy tickets
