With Eric Rimmer of ‘Population Matters’
According to the World Wildlife Fund’s ‘Living Planet Report’ 2014, we now consume 50% more resources than the natural world can replace. This problem is exacerbated as we deplete our energy resources and fresh water supplies, and global warming starts to make food production more difficult. Unless we take action now, we could witness major world-wide disruption and suffering. In this thought-provoking presentation Eric Rimmer 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 a truly sustainable society could be achieved.
Population Matters is a charity concerned with population size, environmental sustainability, family planning, sex education, and women’s empowerment.
Join us at this thought-provoking presentation to discover how we can achieve decent living standards for all, a healthy and biodiverse environment, and a sustainable population size.
