The University of Technology, Sydney, UTSpeaks series will present a panel discussing 'A Hypothetical Future: How Will World Population Impact Us in 50 Years?'
UTSpeaks is a free public lecture series presented by UTS experts discussing a range of important issues confronting contemporary Australia.
With a current world population of 6.8 billion, projected to be nine billion by the year 2050, what will our lives be like in another 50 years? Our consumption is causing scarcity of resources, food production is struggling to meet demand, almost everything we do destroys delicate ecosystems and our greenhouse gas emissions keep growing. Meanwhile, we all believe in a basic human right to reproduce.
This UTSpeaks presents a diverse panel of UTS experts to speculate on a future where overpopulation may be the key force impacting every aspect of human life. Led by ABC Catalyst presenter, Dr Paul Willis, you will be invited to participate in predicting what our future may hold in store.
Professor Dexter Dunphy AM - Business and Sustainability
