Kennedy Jr. to The University of Western Ontario on Wednesday, March 24 to speak to students, faculty, staff, and the London community about the role natural resources play in our work, health and identity in an address entitled, “Our Environmental Destiny.”
“More than just an advocate for the environment, Kennedy is an architect and agent of change in our modern world,” said Dan Moulton, the University Students’ Council Vice President University Affairs. “Mr. Kennedy’s message, as a leading advocate for the protection of our natural world, is a topic that will surely resonate with members of our action-driven Western community.”

Students can purchase tickets for $15, plus tax. Non-student tickets are available now for $30, plus tax.
The event will take place at The University of Western Ontario’s Alumni Hall with doors opening at 6:15 p.m. and the speech commencing at 7:05 p.m. In addition to his dynamic address, Kennedy will partake in a question and answer period with the audience.
Kennedy is an internationally-recognized crusader against the continued deterioration of our planet, and has been named one of Time magazine's ‘Heroes for the Planet’ for his success in helping the RiverKeepers lead the fight to restore the Hudson River, as well as rivers and lakes across North America.
