The Legacy: An Elder's Vision for Our Sustainable Future
In this expanded version of an inspiring speech delivered in December 2009, David Suzuki reflects on how we got where we are today and presents his vision for a better future. In his living memory, Suzuki has witnessed cataclysmic changes in society and our relationship with the planet: the doubling of the world’s population, our increased ecological footprint, and massive technological growth.
Today we are in a state of crisis, and we must join together to respond to that crisis. If we do so, Suzuki envisions a future in which we understand that we are the Earth and live accordingly. All it takes is imagination and a determination to live within our, and the planet's, means. This book is the culmination of David Suzuki’s amazing life and all of his knowledge, experience, and passion — it is his legacy.

This is an amazing book that everyone should be forced to read at school then as a more mature adult for reinforcement. We ARE destroying this planet at a rapid rate. There will be nothing natural in the very near future if we do not change our ways now and reduce the nature of greed for Nature itself. Really think about your existence without what we have now. I wouldn’t want to be here would you? This message of this book must be acknowledged! C.E
