Join experts from the Institute for Population Studies (IPS) and members of Transition Albany and Transition Berkeley as we explore the complex relationships between population growth, social equity and climate change, and the importance of Transition Towns in pursuit of the cultural and political struggles needed to break our addiction to growth.

We’ll begin with a screening of the award-winning film, “Mother: Caring for 7 Billion” (http://www.motherthefilm.com), and follow with a panel and audience discussion. The film illustrates both the overconsumption and the inequity side of the population issue by following Beth, a mother and a child-rights activist as she comes to discover the population issue and the need to rethink our lifestyles and societies.

Cost: FREE
