Hope Matters

November 17, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Join Canadian Club of Victoria members and friends for a talk on zoom by Elin Kelsey about her new book, “Hope Matters: Why Changing the Way We Think is Critical for Solving the Environmental Crisis”.  Passionate about bringing science-based stories of hope and multi-species resilience to the public, Elin is a popular speaker and media commentator who regularly serves as an author/artist in residence and leads hopeful environmental workshops with kindergarten to university students across North America and around the world.


Her contribution to environmental engagement through hope activism resulted in her selection as a 2020 finalist in the Canadian Nature Inspiration Awards. She co-created #OceanOptimism, a twitter campaign to crowd-source marine conservation solutions which has reached more than 100 million shares. Hope Matters: Why Changing the Way We Think Is Critical For Solving The Environmental Crisis by Greystone Books was released October 27, 2020.


She is a feature writer and podcast host for Hakai Magazine and a best-selling children’s book author. Her newest book for children, A Last Goodbye was published in April 2020 and has just been short-listed for the 2021 Silver Birch Express Award.
