Drs. Potts & Campbell to speak on Population & the Environment

February 9, 2012

HowMany.org is pleased to welcome speakers Malcolm Potts and Martha Campbell of UC Berkeley’s Bixby Center for Population, Health & Sustainability. Dr. Potts is a Cambridge trained obstetrician and reproductive scientist, and Bixby professor at the School of Public Health at UC Berkeley. Dr. Campbell, also lecturer in global health at UC Berkeley, is a political scientist, health policy specialist and president of Berkeley-based Venture Strategies for Health and Development. Both Dr. Potts and Dr. Campbell spend time each year conducting field research in the developing world.

Drs. Potts and Campbell will engage the audience on what can be done to slow population growth as we confront global issues of economic hardship, threats to basic reproductive health care and fragile ecosystems disappearing at record rates. While there are many numbers and arguments for the Earth’s maximum sustainable human population, they all hinge on the question: In what manner shall the Earth’s species live?

What: Helping people understand how to slow population growth

Where: Berkeley Unitarian Universalists Fellowship Hall, 1924 Cedar St.

When: Thursday, February 9th, 2012 at 7:00 p.m.
