7.5 Billion and Counting: Where are we headed?

 

Local non-profit, Investments for Developing Communities (IDC), invites you to learn about current issues related to global population growth. Guest speakers John Seager, president and CEO of Population Connection, in Washington D.C., and Suzanne York, project director for the Earth Island Institute in Berkeley, CA, will present latest statistics and field notes related to areas of advocacy, education and project work. With Earth quickly approaching 7.5 billion people, it’s time to make global population growth, with its overarching connections to the environment and human rights, a mainstream issue. Come join in the conversation.
