Preserving our beautiful planet has been central to Population Connection’s mission since it was founded as Zero Population Growth in 1968. Our members know that every single environmental challenge — including climate change — is made more difficult by a continually growing population.
Earth Day is this Saturday, April 22, and Population Connection members and staff will be celebrating our planet with events and activities all across the country! John Seager, President and CEO of Population Connection, will be a guest speaker at the following college campuses:
- Lenoir-Rhyne University—Hickory and Asheville campuses on April 18 and 19, respectively. Find information here.
- State University of New York—College of Environmental Science and Forestry on April 21. Find information here.
John’s talks are just a small sample of our activities making the link between population and the environment throughout this week. See a full rundown here!
