Canada is the second biggest country in the world, and yet 80% of its population lives within city limits. Outdoors with Lawrence Gunther gives voice to those who live in rural, remote and northern communities, and gives listeners who live in cities a different perspective on living sustainably and accessibly.
We all need to get better at living our lives in sustainable ways, and who better to teach us than gen-z youth who are starting fresh without having to unlearn a bunch of unsustainable habits. The segment Getting Schooled by 14-year old Mss. Lilly tackles the toughest environmental mitigation and resilience issues, and just about everything else that has to do with the outdoors.
Early settlers arriving in Canada may have prospered by exploiting the natural resources that indigenous people had conserved for thousands of years, but now the focus is shifting to sustainable and accessible tourism. The podcast segment “” Outdoor Bucket List” introduces listeners to the people with the passion to provide unique outdoor experiences.
No sense reinventing the wheel – the segment “Outdoor Tips and Tech” with Lawrence Gunther will share outdoor tips as a person living with vision loss, including reviews on how well blind tech works off grid. People, rural and urban, will be better equipped and confident to venture off the grid and off the sidewalk.
Each episode of Outdoors with Lawrence Gunther ends with the segment “campfire reflections” featuring listener feedback. A sharing of perspectives rooted in local and traditional knowledge, and Lawrence’s unique connection with nature.
