About the Course:

The United Nations established the eight Millennium Development Goals in 2000 to help alleviate poverty throughout the world. Can these goals be met? What is the missing link? Be apart of a class that will explore how to eradicate poverty, hunger, infant/child/maternal mortality knowing that population growth WILL effect the outcome. 

The Population and MDGs DeCal will feature guest speakers whose work focuses on a particular MDG each week. We will learn bout these various interdisciplinary perspectives and discuss how the population growth factor underlies each one.  

This DeCal will be supervised by Professor Malcolm Potts and the School of Public Health.  


How to Enroll:


 The first day of class will be on Wednesday September 9, 2009 from 6-8 pm in 200 Wheeler. Looking forward to seeing everyone there!
