PLANETARY HEALTH

HUMAN POPULATION

The 8 Billion Angels project is to make a film that dares to tell the truth about the conflict between our population and the sustainability of our planet. It dispels the myth that technology can save us, that reducing consumption is possible and that the problem lies solely in the developing world. 8 Billion Angels addresses overpopulation honestly and compassionately. By clearly depicting the problem and empowering the audience to take actions that can start to heal the planet, we can give humanity the best chance of living in a more just, peaceful and sustainable world. They are looking for funding to make the film; if you want to help go to: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1460708104/8-billion-angels/description
