We meet in Bournemouth for informative and enjoyable presentations, debates and discussions on a wide range of subjects including ethics, science, religion, philosophy, politics, our environment and much more.

‘Population Matters’

Saturday 10th September 2.00pm

Moordown Community Centre, Coronation Avenue, Moordown, Bournemouth  BH9 1TW

A presentation by Mike Freedman of the charity, 'Population Matters'

"All environmental problems become harder, and ultimately impossible to solve, with ever more people.” - David Attenborough

earthWorld population is expected to reach more than 9 billion by 2050. Is this sustainable, or are we heading for disaster?

In this presentation, Mike will provide us with a wealth of information on the crucial issues of the 21st century including overpopulation, overconsumption, food production and water distribution, and explain how he believes a truly sustainable society can be achieved.

Everyone welcome!
