Amy Millan is best-known to many as a musician. But we are shining a light on her role as an environmental instigator: working with friends at USC Canada, she was a leader of the I Am A Seed Saver campaign to promote awareness of biodiversity, farmers’ rights and ecological agriculture. Amy will join us on our OPENING NIGHT as we celebrate her inspirational work – a reminder that there is an environmental activist in all of us.
PiF: Sometimes it really does feel like we are living in the best of times – and the worst of times. Can you share with us why it’s a great time to be an activist?
PiF: What are some action steps people can take in their day-to-day lives that can help to undo the damage we’ve done to the planet?
PiF: It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the amount of information on Climate Change, environmental degradation, suffering communities, etc. What are some of the positive things that keep you optimistic?
PiF: How has being a musician informed your activism and, in turn, how has being an activist informed your music?
