Presentation Information

 

About the Presentation
Brendon Larson is a life-long naturalist who is now an associate professor in the Department of Environment and Resource Studies, Faculty of Environment, University of Waterloo. He holds degrees from the University of Guelph (BSc), the University of Toronto (MSc), and the University of California at Santa Barbara (PhD). He is currently chair of the board of the Invasive Species Center and was formerly the President of the board of Ontario Nature.

About the Presenter
Drawing from his book, Metaphors for Environmental Sustainability: Redefining our Relationship with Nature, Dr. Larson will highlight how metaphors frame our understanding of the natural world and how reforming them can help us relate to global change and move towards sustainability. In this engaging presentation, he will specifically seek to juggle how we usually perceive and relate to invasive species.
