We Are All Connected

Investments for Developing Communities in conjunction with Population Connection, Center for Biological Diversity and Health in Harmony is hosting a film screening and discussion in SE Portland on Friday, October 13 from 6 – 8 pm. Two short films will be shown which speak to the connections between population growth, health, and the environment. Both films were produced by the Wilson Center and highlight community-led development efforts in Tanzania and Nepal to confront these issues. Attendees will themselves grapple with what it means to live in an increasingly interconnected world while discussing the importance of family planning in protecting biodiversity and conserving resources for generations to come. Admission is free; RSVP or by phone/text 971-400-2181.

Film Synopses:
Film 1: Along the northern coast of Tanzania, an innovative approach to development combines efforts to conserve natural resources with reproductive health services and sustainable economic opportunities. 
Film 2: In Healthy People, Healthy Environment, three women from the Pangani and Bagamoyo districts show how integrated population, health, and environment (PHE) projects empower them to help their families, their communities, and their environment.
Film 3: In the foothills of Nepal, extreme deforestation has pushed many rural communities onto marginal lands. In Scaling the Mountain, villagers in Jogimara and Naubise find that combining conservation efforts with reproductive health services helps them support their families and their communities more sustainably.
