Population Matters, a Talk by Alistair Currie. Wednesday, 10th June, 7-9PM

(This is a Zoom event, see joining instructions below.)
Alistair Currie will be speaking about the work of “Population Matters”. The following is from their website: https://populationmatters.org/about-us .”We believe that population is one of the most important, but neglected, contributors to almost all of the major problems facing us today. In particular that means the multiple environmental threats our planet faces, but an unsustainable population also contributes to poverty, conflict, resource depletion and a poorer quality of life for many people.A growing number of scientists, activists and members of the public are recognising that action to address a global population of 7.7 billion people and growing will help people, the living things around us and the planet we live on.That action is simple, positive, and improves people’s lives: lifting people out of poverty, providing education, empowering women and girls, providing good modern family planning to all and encouraging smaller families.

Despite that, there is still resistance among some politicians, organisations and campaigners to that positive message. Addressing population is not the only solution to the challenges we face. There is much else that needs to be done – but adding ever more people to the billions already here makes each of those other soutions harder to achieve.The role of Population Matters is to spread that message, encourage smaller families, and ensure that action to achieve a sustainable population happens. That will help to create a just world, in which everyone has a decent standard of life and the opportunities they deserve, and the natural world is healthy and flourishing.”
