Join experts from the Institute for Population Studies (IPS), Global Footprint Network, Sierra Club and Earth Island Institute as we explore the complex and critical, yet often not discussed, intersection of population growth and climate change and the effects both have on human health, women’s rights, and the social and economic issues we face globally and locally.
We’ll begin with a screening of the internationally acclaimed, award winning film “Mother: Caring for 7 Billion” (http://www.motherthefilm.com), and follow with a panel and audience discussion.
Co-hosted with the Institute for Population Studies & HowMany.org
About the Regenerating Solutions Salon series: The Bay Area environmental scene is rich with opportunities to volunteer, take action, and get politically engaged. What’s missing? A time and space for talking with others about questions, issues, and challenges that come up when engaging in environmental advocacy and personal action. The Ecology Center’s Regenerating Solutions Salon addresses this through presentations and facilitated discussions touching on a variety of topics.
