Location Update: 12th October
Hi everyone. So last month (out of necessity) we tried a new location and the general consensus was that it was a great success! So we're going to do it again. I have booked a big communal table, like last month - but at a more central location. So we'll be heading to Le Pain Quotidien again, but this time in Soho. Easily accessible by four different tube stations (Piccadilly Circus, Leicester Square, Tottenham Court Road, and Oxford Circus - that's 5 different tube lines!) ... what worked well last time, was grouping up to have discussions (we found it was not practical to have a large group discussion), then shuffling everyone up half way through the evening so that we end up talking to different people. Which, again, I got positive feedback about. So we will follow this format this month too. I've organised with the manager that we can all pay seperately, so you can easily have something to eat while you chat! I've been told we'll be in the downstairs part of the restaurant.
Any questions - just let me know! See you there! Joanna
I attended a lecture a few months ago, given by a representative from the organisation ‘Population Matters’… which was on the issue of the human population of planet earth. It presented the key reasons for concern about the number of human beings – it piqued my interest and curiosity. I want to learn more.
So join me this month in exploring the topic of Population.
Experts have calculated that the planet’s population will increase from 7 billion to 9 billion by 2050! The world population has already risen from 2 to 7 billion in the last 85 years. That to me is mind boggling!
What really are the issues? How many human beings can our finite world sustain?
Just like I have done before ... I've provided suggestions for books below, these suggestions have actually come from the Population Matters website …hope this is helpful?
So pick a book and happy reading!
