BurlingtonGreen is proud to present this dual-component event every 2 to 3 years to inspire and empower audiences to take action to help the planet locally. Internationally renowned eco-heroes such as Dr. Jane Goodall, Robert Bateman, Severn & David Suzuki and Sharkwater's Rob Stewart have been brought to this event to inspire thousands.

On November 21st, 2017, we were THRILLED to present "Connect the Dots" in partnership with the David Suzuki Foundation, featuring the one and only Dr. David Suzuki who served as the keynote speaker for both the daytime Youth Eco-Summit as well as the evening public event.  Check out some of the highlights here.
