The human population is experiencing exponential growth. Over the past 200 years we’ve reached our 2nd billion and the 7th billion milestone.  While this tells of our great success in the fields of medicine and technology, the population growth is also the source of great threats: environmental and political instability, famine and disease. We will discuss three dynamics that the population growth already set in motion: urbanization, immigration and empowering of women, and try to identify the opportunities within the challenges.

Please join us for this interesting presentation!
