One of Canada’s most versatile, experienced and busy, professional authors, Dr. Silver Donald Cameron is the Host and Executive Producer of TheGreenInterview.com, an environmental website devoted to in-depth conversations with thinkers and activists who are leading the way to a sustainable future. Interviewees have included green giants like Vandana Shiva, Farley Mowat, Robert Bateman, Jane Goodall, David Suzuki, George Monbiot, and the former Prime Minister of Bhutan.
Dr. Cameron also wrote and narrated The Green Interview’s two documentary films, Bhutan: The Pursuit of Gross National Happiness (2010) and Salmon Wars: Salmon Farms, Wild Fish and the Future of Communities (2012).
He has also written plays, films, radio and TV scripts, an extensive body of corporate and governmental writing, hundreds of magazine articles and 17 books, including two novels, for which he has won countless awards.
Maybe most pertinent to our conversation, Silver Donald Cameron is the writer and narrator of GreenRights.com, a multimedia project about environmental rights. I’m excited to be sitting with him today to learn a little about the many facets of this project, which explores the idea of incorporating rights for the natural world, as well as the right to a healthy environment, into our constitution, and now includes a book called “Warrior Lawyers”, a film called “Defenders of the Dawn” and even a “rolling transcontinental medicine show.”
