globeHow increasing population is making the task of government harder – Kelvin Thomson MP

The Australia Institute and Sustainable Population Australia will host a talk by Kelvin Thomson MP on the evening of Thursday 25 August.

Kelvin will discuss the topic ‘The witches’ hats theory of government: How increasing population is making the task of government harder.’

Providing food, water, energy, housing, education, jobs, health, liveable cities and protecting the environment are all made harder by a growing population. Governments wonder why their citizens don’t like them, but the solution is right under their noses.
