David Suzuki and his daughter discover City’s waste management system on cross-country eco-journey
Edmonton’s waste management system is known as one of the most innovative in the world and that reputation earned Edmonton a spot on a special episode of the Nature of Things called The Suzuki Diaries: Future City.
The Suzuki Diaries features David Suzuki and his daughter Sarika as they travel the country to find inspiring stories of people doing it right. In Future City, the Suzuki’s visit some of Canada’s biggest cities to see how they tackle environmental issues such as land use, food, housing, energy and waste.
In Edmonton, they toured the Edmonton Waste Management Centre and met with Councillor Don Iveson to learn about our sustainable waste management system. What they discovered is that our leadership in waste management is a result of the dedication of people at all levels, from City Council, to City staff, to the residents of Edmonton.
The Suzuki Diaries: Future City will air on CBC Television on Thursday, February 16, 2012 at 8pm.
The CBC has a synopsis of the show at:
