The Declaration of Interdependence - both an enlightening creed and a passionate call to action - was composed by David Suzuki and a team of activists and environmentalists in 1992, in recognition of the United Nations' Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro. This compelling statement of environmental principles progresses through three stages: 'This We Know,' 'This We Believe' and 'This We Resolve'. In this exquisitely designed edition - produced to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the David Suzuki Foundation - artist Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas brings this powerful creed to life using imagery from cultures around the world, interpreted through his dynamic Haida Manga style and includes an inspiring essay by David Suzuki.
David Suzuki is an internationally renowned scientist, environmentalist and broadcaster who has spent over 40 years educating people about science and environmental issues in the classroom and over the airwaves. Dr. Suzuki is acclaimed for his ability to explain the complexities of science in a compelling and easy-to-understand way. His face is familiar to millions around the world from the popular science TV show The Nature of Things, which he has hosted since 1979. Tara Cullis is president and co-founder of the David Suzuki Foundation. Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas' art riffs on traditional Haida techniques and is informed by years of political activism.
