Mother: Caring for 7 Billion

Mother: Caring for 7 Billion breaks a 40-year taboo by focusing on population growth, which silently fuels our most pressing environmental, humanitarian & social crises. For the first time in 2011, the world’s population will reach seven billion people.

Robert Walker, the featured discussion leader, is the Executive Vice President of Population Institute, where he directs advocacy & public education activities, including its work on issues related to health, economic development, sustainability & the environment.

This month’s film is sponsored by Beaverdam Creek Watershed Watch Group, CHEARS (Chesapeake Education, Arts & Research Society), Prince George’s Peace & Justice Coalition, and Vegan Networking.
