Touching Life relates the inspiring story of a visually impaired couple raising their seven-year-old son. In this ode to happiness, where life is felt rather than seen, we follow Yuko and Thilo as they pursue their dream: to overcome their disability, fall in love and reach their ultimate goal of becoming parents. Because their son Kurtis can see, he becomes the link between the worlds of shadow and of light. He lends them his sight while his parents help him see his path toward adulthood. By delving into the lives of Yuko, Thilo and Kurtis, we rediscover our own. They remind us of a truth we can't see with our own eyes: that love makes the invisible luminous.
Moderated by Greenpeace Canada’s Executive Director Joanna Kerr, this momentous event will feature Greenpeace International’s Executive Director Kumi Naidoo and other leading environmental/social justice change makers.
This will be an interactive evening of inspiration and dynamic discussion about the environment, social justice, the role of government and the power of community engagement. If our moment is now, what can we do to secure the planet for future generations?
