Sustainable Tourism – New Addition

September 6, 2011

GMIST would like to extend a welcome to its newest facilitator Carl Duivenvoorden who is a speaker, writer and environmental consultant.  Carl will be working with GMIST to help grow and develop our sustainable tourism programs.

Carl Duivenvoorden was raised on a dairy farm in northern carlNew Brunswick, and attended the NS Agricultural College.  His diverse career has taken him to over 25 countries, from New Zealand to Vietnam to Brazil.

In 2006, he read “An Inconvenient Truth”, the book that catapulted climate change to the top of the global agenda.  In April 2007, he became one of the first Canadians to be personally trained by Al Gore.  Since then, he has presented “An Inconvenient Truth” in English and French over 250 times to more than 35,000 people across Atlantic Canada and in the US.

Formerly with Efficiency New Brunswick, Carl now makes his living as a speaker, writer and consultant, helping people and organizations learn how they can save money, energy and our environment.  He also writes a biweekly column, Green Ideas, in the NB Telegraph Journal and three NB weeklies.

He looks forward to sharing his passion with you.

Carl has recently been selected as one of only 22 Global leaders to present as part of Al Gore’s 24 Hours of Reality.  He will be presenting to participants in Ilulissat Greenland.
