Dr. David V.J. Bell Memorial Fund

Learning for a Sustainable Future
2006 - 2017

It is with deep regret and sadness that we share with you the news of the passing of our board chair, Dr. David V.J. Bell on January 10, 2017. 

Dr. David V.J. Bell has been a member of LSF since 1995 and became Chair of the Board of Directors in 2006. He has been an integral part of our organization for over 22 years. His passion, commitment and dedication to sustainability and education have left a permanent imprint on policy makers, educators and youth across Canada and internationally. LSF would not be where we are today if not for his leadership and countless contributions which have been recognized through awards including: the Green Toronto Award for Leadership in Sustainability, the EECOM Award, the Harry Jerome Award, 2017 Clean50 Award, and the Jackie Robinson Fortitude Award. 
To honour David's optimism, work, and passion for Education for Sustainable Development, The Dr. David V.J. Bell Memorial Fund has been established at Learning for a Sustainable Future (LSF).  The fund will continue David's important legacy in "empowering our children to change the world".

David was an advocate for youth and a champion for the environment.  He was a friend, mentor, and inspiration for all. He will be sorely missed by his family, friends and colleagues.
The LSF Board and staff extend our condolences, sympathies and support to David's wife, Kaaren Bell, and their family at this difficult time.

Pamela Schwartzberg, President and CEO, LSF
