Earth Day 2021

Population Connection members and supporters participated in our second all-virtual Earth Day in April, joining us for a month-long “Passport Series” of expert voices from around the world and a screening of the uplifting documentary 2040. In total, over 450 members and supporters joined us for at least one virtual Earth Day event!


Dr. Michelle Dubón, Medical Director of WINGS, spoke at length about WINGS’ provision of family planning services to Guatemala’s rural and marginalized people.


Riju Dhakal and Sajja Singh of YUWA, a youth-led organization based in Nepal, discussed YUWA’s work throughout Nepal, which is centered around sexual and reproductive health and rights activism.


Alisha Graves, Executive Director and Founder of OASIS, and Lucie Ouedraogo, former Sahel Leadership Program Fellow at OASIS, presented on how family planning, population, and environmental issues intertwine in the Sahel region in Africa.


Our series concluded with a screening and discussion of 2040—a hopeful new film that focuses on some of the most innovative and effective solutions to climate change, including the empowerment of women and girls.


If you missed any of these presentations, they’re available to view on our website at popconnect.org/earthday.

The next book club meeting will take place in July—you can find more information, and sign up to join us, at popconnect.org/book-club.
