Gwynne Dyer Gives Lecture at The College of the Rockies

Gwynne Dyer has worked as a freelance journalist, columnist, broadcaster and lecturer on international affairs for more than 20 years and is well known around the world. 
In his trademark leather jacket, Dr. Dyer held the crowd of almost two hundred in riveted silence for an hour and a half at the College of the Rockies last evening. He gave a message of cautious optimism for the future detailing his reasons as the peaceful revolution now happening in Egypt,  the resumption of albeit slow talks on climate change and the acceptance of emerging industrialization and powers of countries such as China and India.  His animated presentation, interspersed with humour was a treat. 


Those in attendance had the opportunity to purchase Dr. Dyer's latest book 'Crawling from the Wreckage' and also to have it signed.

Many Thanks to the College of the Rockies and Sunshine Rotary for making this presentation happen.
