Conversations with people… and encounters with ideas… that are re-inventing the world.


And now… Green Rights, The Tour!

Posted on Aug 13, 2016 | 0 comments

There it is, in a nutshell. In every creative project, there’s a tension between creating the work and helping it find its audience. For months, we’ve been finishing the keystone pieces of the Green Rights multi-media project (www.GreenRights.com) – a feature-length film called Green Rights: The Human Right to a Healthy World, and a book entitled Warrior...

I’m about to have a very busy week, with four public speaking events — and tomorrow, Monday September 12, is particularly daffy.

Silver Donald Cameron’s TEDx talk on Gross National Happiness in Bhutan

Posted on Aug 15, 2011 | 0 comments

I’m a huge fan of the TED talks, 18-minute nuggets of wisdom, insight, fun and stimulation. If you don’t know them, you have a treat in store at www.ted.com. So I was thrilled when I was invited to speak at a TEDx event in Halifax last June – a local, self-organized occasion licensed by TED to bring people together to share a TED-like experience. I...

Posted on Apr 11, 2011 | 1 comment

In this Canadian federal election, the major parties have connived with the national broadcasters to prevent the inclusion of Green Party leader Elizabeth May in the televised “debates” that have become such an important feature of modern elections. The official fiction is that because the Greens have no seats in Parliament, they are not a national party...

I just delivered a profusely-illustrated keynote speech called “Bhutan: The Pursuit of Gross National Happiness” at a 300-person conference of the Canadian Organic Growers, Toronto chapter.

The New Silver Donald Cameron Website

Posted on Feb 14, 2011 | 0 comments

We’ve just finished – well, almost – a major overhaul of my own web site, www.silverdonaldcameron.ca. A few things are still missing, like some introductory text on the “Books” page, and a bit more detail (plus a photo) on the “Speaker” page, but overall I’m very pleased with it. The site had become very cluttered and...

Green Speaking in Halifax and Prince Edward Island

Posted on Dec 6, 2010 | 0 comments

I do a lot of public speaking — please remember that, if you’re looking for a speaker! — and speaking generally involves air travel. That troubles me. I do buy carbon credits to offset my emissions, and I always manage to amortize the emissions over several projects by doing a variety of things at my destination — picking up material for...
