ECHO’S Café Scientifique Presents POPULATION BOOM: How Many Earths do we Need? Thursday, March 8, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

BURLINGTON, VT. — ECHO’s After Dark adult program, Café Scientifique, offers yet another fascinating topic for discussion with Population Boom: How many Earths do we Need? This adult forum will be led by John Seager, President, Population Connection, as he addresses the question, “What environmental crises will develop with our rapidly growing world?” This event will be held Thursday, March 8, 2012 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center, at the foot of College Street in Burlington Vermont.

John Seager, President, Population Connection is the guest presenter. Discussion points include why the population is still growing so rapidly if the fertility rate has been declining for the past half-century. He will also address how societal values have affected family planning programs worldwide.

John Seager is the President and CEO of Population Connection - having first joined the organization in 1996. He previously served with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency during the Clinton Administration. John was also Chief of Staff for former U.S. Representative Peter H. Kostmayer (D-PA), a senior member of the House Foreign Affairs and Interior committees.

Join us in a mind expanding, thought provoking evening for adults, exploring the topic of “Population Boom”. Suggested donation $5. Event for 21+ with cash bar and themed drink; FREE hors d’oeuvres sponsored by VT Sigma Xi, Scientific Research Society.
