Mike Hanauer will be showing the 50 minute version of the documentary film GrowthBusters: Hooked on Growth (http://www.growthbusters.org/) which will be followed by a discussion of the issues raised in the film. In particular, the issues around:
- Economic Growth
- Consumption Growth
- Population Growth
- Urban Growth
We'll socialize and have a few quick announcements from 7:00 to 7:15. Mike's talk will start at 7:15 with discussion to follow. (At around 9:00 we'll start an open steering committee meeting which everyone is welcome to attend.)
Mike has been a sustainability, climate change and population activist for over twenty-five years. He has served as a climate action coordinator, has been co-chair of the New England Coalition for Sustainable Population, and chair of Zero Population Growth of Greater Boston. He has also served as a Director on the National Board of Zero Population Growth (now Population Connection). Mike may be best known for his belief that real sustainability should be a major goal of all environment organizations. He has authored a number of articles on the relationships between population growth, consumption and environment including “OverPopulation or OverConsumption: Where should we focus” published by Negative Population Growth.
