In 1970 we rallied to rein in human population growth, in the interest of Earth stewardship and sustainability. That rally faded to a murmur in the years that followed. Today, nearly 50 years later, the world is belatedly waking up to the urgent need to address the population side of the sustainability equation.
Making human population part of the conversation on Earth Day is one of the goals of the Center for Biological Diversity’s Population & Sustainability Program. The Center is one of the few environmental NGOs promoting action to achieve sustainable population. In this webinar, we’ll learn why human population growth needs to be a part of Earth Day and what the Center is doing to bring it back to the environmental conversation. We’ll also hear from a high school student about her experience organizing a school event about population and sustainability, and as a volunteer distributing Endangered Species Condoms.
