Population Matters conference and public meeting
2pm Saturday 3 March 2018
Conway Hall, London
Population Matters is pleased to host a timely and important public conference examining one of the most critical issues we face: the impact of population growth on climate change.
With global temperatures looking set to breach the 1.5 degree target set in the Paris Agreement, urgent action is required to minimise emissions as soon as possible. Global population is expected to rise by 2 billion people by 2050, putting nearly 30% more human carbon emitters on the planet.
Today, a UK citizen produces 70 times more CO2 than someone from Niger. Meanwhile, increasing affluence in India and China, the world’s two most populous nations, is driving their emissions upwards. Can we find sustainable solutions to climate change without tackling population growth across the globe? And can tackling population growth also empower those who are at greatest risk from climate change?
Climate change and us: more feet, more heat? is an opportunity to examine the issues and consider the options. Members of the public are welcome and the event is free of charge. Register for it here.
Population Matters is bringing together a range of international experts and campaigners to discuss this vital issue and the solutions available to us.
Conway Hall, 25 Red Lion Square, London WC1R 4RL. Conway Hall is in Holborn in central London. Find out more about the venue and how to get there on their website.
Doors will open at 1.30pm. The event will finish at 4.30.
