by on Thursday, 11 December 2014 Comments

Peter and Anne Venton are both researchers from Canada, they are respectively concerned with economic inequality and human rights from an environmental point of view. In November 2014, they were on a tour in Taiwan, giving speeches in various cities about "the Radical Changes in Canadian Democracy for the Ecology and the Public Good" and "The Environment, Women and Human Rights".

We caught up with them at the end of the tour of Taiwan for a brief interview. 

Anne Venton talks about the necessity of enshrining the right to a clean environment in the Constitution.  

 

Peter Venton addresses some of the weaknesses of Canadian democracy.

 

Read the paper Peter Venton presented at the Global Ecological Integrity Group International Conference in June 2014:
