Get to Know Our Global Partners
2022 Year in Review
Our 2023 virtual events program kicked off with a 2022 Year in Review. Population Connection staff discussed our newest offerings for K-12 students and educators; explained how we responded to changes in the reproductive rights advocacy landscape; gave an overview of our successful communications efforts informing the public about population issues; and shared updates on our Global Partners program.
Global Partners Series
We have a full slate of virtual events planned for 2023, including a year-long Global Partners series that will feature a number of our international partner organizations. Join us to hear their stories, learn more about their programs, and enhance your own knowledge about the connections between population, health, and the environment. The first installment of the series took place on February 9 and featured Kamal Rawal of RUWDUC in Nepal. Hannah Evans, Senior Analyst, visited RUWDUC for a week in November, and she moderated Kamal’s presentation and shared her own impressions of the important work RUWDUC is doing in the areas of women’s empowerment, gender equality, environmental conservation, economic opportunity, health care, and climate adaptation throughout the far-west region. See the page opposite for a rundown of RUWDUC’s work!
Page Turners Book Club
Our Page Turners book club meets quarterly throughout the year. These meetings are an interesting and informative way to learn more about population-related issues and virtually meet like-minded Population Connection members and supporters. The next Page Turners meeting, on May 9, will feature an appearance by Dr. Gladys Kalema-Zikusoka. Dr. Gladys will join us to discuss May’s book club pick—Walking With Gorillas: The Journey of an African Wildlife Vet—her just-released memoir. Dr. Gladys is the Founder and CEO of Conservation Through Public Health, our first official Global Partner, and sits on Population Connection’s Board of Directors.
