Young People's Question Time - Population Matters: Why & How?
14 August 2020, 16:00 - 17:30 (Add to calendar)
Following the success of the Question Time in May, we are giving anyone between the age of 14 and 24 the opportunity to explore some of the ecological and climate change issues in more depth.
For this event on 14th August, we will be joined by Alistair Curry, the Head of Campaigns & Communications at Population Matters. This is a UK-based charity that works globally to achieve a sustainable human population that is in greater harmony with nature and the environment. Some of the patrons of the charity include: Sir David Attenborough, Chris Packham & Dame Jane Goodall.
During the Young People’s Question Time in May the issue of human population growth came up. There was quite a heated debate starting in the Chat box! This is an opportunity to look at some of the complex issues around this, not only birth rates but also increasing life expectancy. What does the research show? What are some of the solutions being proposed? What do you think?
After registering for the event, if you have not attended before, you will be sent a Code of Conduct and a Parental Consent Form. These must be completed and sent back before the event. You will then be sent a link to join the event via Zoom, on the morning of the event - remember to look out for that email in your inbox! We will also email you some links to some of the videos and articles on the Population Matters website. Have a look at these beforehand.
If you have any specific questions you know you would like to ask Mr Curry, please do email them in advance to: KatH@ShropshireWildlifeTrust.org.uk
