Dr. Suzanne Simard is a professor with the UBC Faculty of Forestry, where she lectures on and researches the role of mycorrhizae and mycorrhizal networks in tree species migrations with climate change disturbance. Networks of mycorrhizal fungal mycelium have recently been discovered by Professor Suzanne Simard and her graduate students to connect the roots of trees and facilitate the sharing of resources in Douglas-fir forests of interior British Columbia, thereby bolstering their resilience against disturbance or stress and facilitating the establishment of new regeneration.

The Venus Project: The Choice is OursThis film series explores many aspects of our society. To rethink what is possible in our world, we need to consider what kind of world we want to live in. Although we refer to it as civilization, it is anything but civilized. Visions of global unity & fellowship have long inspired humanity, yet the social arrangements up to the present have largely failed to produce a peaceful and productive world. While we appear to be technically advanced, our values and behaviors are not. The possibility of an optimistic future is in stark contrast to our current social, economic, and environmental dilemmas. The Choice is Ours includes interviews with notable scientists, media professionals, authors, and other thinkers exploring the difficulties we face.

Tiny in a huge dark world bereft of warmth, bereft of light.
The sun’s rays filter weakly through the freezing mists for barely a moment it seems,
before they are gone plunging the world back beneath a blanket of sable silence.
But they are not gone forever,
they will return… soon, they will return
From now on the days will get longer
the sun’s power will shine down on us with increasing vigour
more welcome, more revered for their absence
(we only learn to love that which we lose as well)
Thus the wheel of life turns,
from dark to light and back again,
