Hosted by the Center for Biological Diversity and Population Connection with a panel discussion to follow.
Over the past 200 years humanity has increased 7 fold and yet talking about population growth has become a taboo. Has society gone too far by silencing the conversation? Mother: Caring for 7 Billion is a groundbreaking film that asks the right questions and doesn’t shy away from the controversy. It exposes what it means to live in a world of 7 billion and how our growing numbers affect not only our own future, but also life, as we know it, on this planet. Mother, produced by Tiroir , is an award-winning film that features world-renowned experts to help explore how population growth intersects with gender equity, religion, reproductive health, economic inequality and the environment. It is fundamentally a film of hope and shows the strength of the human spirit to make a better world. (Dir. by Christophe Fauchere, 2011, USA, 60 mins., Not Rated)
