Dimitri Lascaris is one hell of a speaker, and Toronto 350 is one hell of a group. It was our pleasure to film Dimitri’s talk at the University of Toronto during the official presentation of Toronto 350’s divestment brief asking the university to completely divest its significant assets from a list of 200 of the worst climate offenders on March 06, 2014.
You can also hear our interview with Dimitri and read the blog post for the Green Majority radio show from February 28th, 2014 here.
