Women of Interest – Severn Cullis-Suzuki

Severn Cullis-Suzuki, an environmentalist, was born November 30, 1979. Severn has followed in the footsteps of her well known father and environmental activist, David Suzuki. At the age of nine she founded (ECO) an Environmental Children’s Organization where she strives to teach other children about environmental issues. Three years later, Cullis-Suzuki, along with her friends, raised enough money to attend the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, where she presented a speech detailing our need to protect the Earth for the future of our loved ones. This speech continues to be viewed on You Tube. In 1993 her first book was published “Tell the World” which was written to educate families to be more environmentally conscious. Cullis-Suzuki graduated from Yale University with a B.S. in ecology and evolutionary biology. She continues to champion for environmental causes and has become the main character in a documentary film titled “Severn, the Voice of our Children” which was released in France on November 10, 2010.
