Population, the Planet, and the Health and Well-being of Children in the Future

Apr 21, 2016

The world’s population of 7.3 billion people is expected to reach 11.2 billion by the end of this century. Can our planet support that many people? What are the consequences of population on the environment, natural resources and climate? What about the effects on our own health?
Join us for an evening of conversation on these important questions and discover how our growing population will affect the health and well-being of our children.
An art exhibit by National Geographic Explorer Asher Jay will be presented in the Canaccord Gallery. A selection of prints from the art exhibition will be available for purchase.
