Spirit Bear and the Power of One, with Simon Jackson - Leadership Speakers Series

Date: Nov 18, 2010, 7pm - 9pm
Location: Evergreen Cultural Centre (1205 Pinetree Way, Coquitlam, BC)

Time Magazine’s Hero for the Planet, Simon Jackson, is the 26-year-old founder and Chairman of the 6 million strong Spirit Bear Youth Coalition, and Executive Producer of the forth-coming Hollywood animated movie, The Spirit Bear. Through his 13 years of working to save BC’s endangered white Kermode or spirit bear, Simon has become a model of the power of one. In the telling of his unique story – the focus of a recent made-for-TV movie – Simon illustrates how he overcame roadblocks and skeptics to help make the spirit bear one of the world’s foremost environmental issues. The lessons he learned and the insight he gained is not just the recipe to save the spirit bear, but a tool kit for action for anyone – especially youth – who want to make a difference in our world. Simon’s message is inspirational, motivational, and educational: Not only will you want to catch the spirit to save the bear, but you’ll be a believer in the power of one.
