The Blue Dot Tour has just been announced and already an impressive list of Canadian icons and thought leaders has jumped on board and pledged to stand with David Suzuki to protect the people and places they love.

All the performers taking the stage at a Blue Dot event are volunteering their time because they believe in the power and possibility of recognizing the right to a healthy environment for all Canadians.

Just like you and me, the performers standing with David know that our children deserve the right to fresh air, clean water and healthy food and that we all deserve to have a voice in the decisions that affect the health of our community.

They are frustrated by the fact that one in two Canadians lives in an area with unsafe levels of air pollution.

They know that together we can change this.

So they’re doing what they can — they’re rearranging schedules, clearing space in their calendars, working on songs and sets and committing to stand with us at events this fall to raise their voices for the Blue Dot movement.

In no particular order, because they’re all incredible, here’s the list of artists and thought leaders who have already joined the Blue Dot movement:

  • Neil Young
  • Margaret Atwood
  • Robert Bateman
  • Bruce Cockburn
  • Jim Cuddy
  • Feist
  • Jeremy Fisher
  • Grimes
  • Jenn Grant
  • Greg Keelor
  • Chantal Kreviazuk
  • Shane Koyczan
  • Stephen Lewis
  • Metric
  • Raine Maida
  • Joel Plaskett
  • Raffi
  • Kinnie Starr

Now it’s your turn.

The Blue Dot Tour crosses the country with David Suzuki this fall, stopping in 20 communities over seven weeks for marquee evening events, VIP experiences with David Suzuki, leadership training, kids’ nature activities and community programming.

A different combination of these amazing Canadians will join David at each stop, so check the details for your local community and remember that new personalities are being added all the time.

It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to join our inspiring founder on what will likely be his last national tour.

They’re all coming. Shouldn’t you?
