The Coming Population Crash: Our Planet's Surprising Future

Speaker: Fred Pearce, author of When the Rivers Run Dry

When: Friday April 16 @ 7 PM
Where: First Church in Jamaica Plain Unitarian Universalist, 6 Eliot Street, Jamaica Plain

Fred Pearce has chronicled the troubling history of efforts to contain the demographic explosion, -- from the early environmental movement's racism and involvement in eugenics, to coercive family-planning policies in China and India. At this forum, he will discuss the environmental, social, and economic effects of our surprising demographic future: a shrinking, graying population; mass migrations; and, just maybe, a wiser world.
