The Population Institute is pleased to announce that the 2010 Global Population Speak Out (GPSO) will commence on February 1st and run through the whole month.
GPSO is designed to promote a new and responsible global discussion — one that recognizes a healthy and stable population is a prerequisite of global sustainability.
Endorsed by high profile scientists and celebrities such as Paul Ehrlich, Dennis Meadows and Alexandra Paul, the Global Population Speak Out specifically challenges the taboo against discussing population.
I strongly encourage you to make a pledge to participate, which you can do by clicking through the following secure link:
When February arrives, you can write a blog post, submit an LTE or Op-Ed, create a poster, give a speech — whatever you feel comfortable doing to “Speak Out.” Over 220 other people – and counting – from around the world have already pledged. Together, all our small actions will add up to one big month for the cause of sustainability.
Last year, the Global Population Speak Out was covered in Science Magazine, The Christian Science Monitor and the London Times Online, among others. For more information, visit the website: http://gpso.wordpress.com/
