We are hosting a special Earth Day edition of Northshire Live with environmentalist legend Gus Speth and our good friend Edward Cameron!
Gus Speth recently served as dean of Yale’s school of environment and forestry and as professor of law at Vermont Law School. At the United Nations, he was the head of the UN’s Development Program. Prior to that, he was co-founder of both the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and the World Resources Institute (WRI), where he led on many environmental issues over a period of 17 years. During the Carter years, he served as chair of the White House Council on Environmental Quality. In jail in Washington DC with Bill McKibben and others on a climate protest, Speth said the following of his 3-day stay, “I’ve held a lot of important positions in this town, but none seems as important as this one.” We are also thrilled to have published Gus’ debut collection of poetry What We Have Instead through our own Shires Press.
Dr. Edward Cameron is specialist in risk and resilience. He is one of the early pioneers of the climate justice movement and has spent more than two decades working at the interface between climate change, human rights, and development. He advises governments, multinational companies, international organizations, nonprofits, universities and philanthropies designing climate strategies, public policies, funds, and educational programs. Edward lives in Manchester Vermont with his wife and two young sons.
