"The World at 6 Billion: Where Do We Go From Here?"

Thursday, November 11, 1999

The United Nations established October 12, 1999 as the day world population will top 6 billion people. In honor of this historic landmark, the Population Fellows Program and Population Studies Center invited a distinguished panel of experts to discuss what this means for global welfare.

Speakers included:

Director of the United Nations Population Division Joseph Chamie, who provided context by discussing, "6 Billion: How we got here and where we're going;"

Dean of Columbia University's School of Public Health Allan Rosenfield, who discussed the implications of 6 billion people for the world's health; and

University of Michigan Sociologist Ronald Freedman, who shared his views on the social implications of current population growth patterns.

The panel was moderated by Dr. Sara Seims, then president of the Alan Guttmacher Institute.
