Environmental History Project – Sustainable Forestry

My work in the social economy was interrupted in the early 1990s, when I spent four years as a policy advisor to Bud Wildman, Minister responsible for Natural Resources and Native Affairs in the Ontario government.

You may wonder what connects social economy and forestry policy. The answer, in my case, is that I graduated from Forestry at University of Toronto and spent my early career in the forest industry.

Gord Miller, the Environment Commissioner of Ontario, is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Ontario Environmental Bill of Rights. Memories of people who were involved in significant environmental events and organizations are available on line at www.environmentalbeginnings.ca. I will be telling my story of working for sustainable forestry in a panel discussion later this month.

The session on sustainable forestry should be available shortly after it is recorded on April 24, 2013.
