Please Join UPEC Monday evening November 14 at Proper Burger to Mark the Global Population Reaching 8 Billion.
UPEC (the Utah Population and Environment Council) was founded in 1997 because we (and I was among the founders) despaired that Utah leaders were failing to recognize how continued rapid growth, both in population and consumption, would destroy what we love about the state.
Hi everyone, my name is Dani Huckabone, and I am the social media and design intern at UPEC. (So, if you are seeing this blog entry on the web, please make sure to find UPEC on Instagram and Facebook!) I am currently in my final semester at the University of Utah, double majoring in Environmental Studies and Design.
We offer a bit of good news and hope in the form of an update from Nepal, a country seeing dramatic birth rate declines due to its investments in community and female health, and the work of many NGOs.
