There is no possibility of achieving our stated goal of sustainable development if we don’t stabilise the human population and reduce our resource demands”
Professor Ian Lowe


In this webinar we'll have brave conversations about the tricky subjects of population and consumption. We'll examine the impact of growing human populations and escalating consumption levels on our climate and ecological crisis, and discuss positive actions that we can take to address these impacts.
