11 a.m., September 19, 2021
You’re invited to a Zoom presentation by John Seager, Population Connection’s President & CEO, entitled “Inalienable: The Rights Way to Meet Population Challenges on a Crowded Planet”, on the challenges of rapid population growth.
John will discuss the vital connections between population growth, social justice, environmental challenges, and women’s rights. World population is projected to reach 8 billion in just two years, and it’s crucial that we address the causes and negative impacts of rapid population growth on people and the planet.
Before joining Population Connection, John worked at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). A veteran of 50+ political campaigns, John served as Chief of Staff for a former Congressman from Pennsylvania. John earned a BA in Political Science from Trinity College, Connecticut.
John has spoken on population, the environment, and women’s empowerment at colleges and universities and for progressive organizations across the US.
Founded in 1968 as Zero Population Growth (ZPG), Population Connection is the only national grassroots population organization that educates young people and advocates progressive action to stabilize world population at a level that can be sustained by Earth’s resources.
