In partnership with the Population Media Center and the Wallace Global Fund, the Population Institute is hosting a public forum on October 6, 2009, on the subject of "Population Growth and Rising Consumption: What's Sustainable?"
The forum, which is being held at the Kaiser Family Foundation's Barbara Jordan Conference Center in downtown Washington, D.C., will bring together leading experts on population, economics and sustainability to talk about the implications of population growth, resource scarcity and climate change for future economic well-being.
Bob Walker, executive vice president of the Population Institute, said, "In a world of melting glaciers and mounting concern about resource scarcity, it's time to look at the human trajectory and what it means for economic well-being and the future of the planet. This forum brings together some of the leading thinkers in the growing debate over sustainability."
Anyone interested in attending the event should contact the Population Institute at (202) 544-3300, ext. 108 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Seating is limited.
