Driving Breakthroughs to a Thriving Future
Preliminary notes for a strategy to significantly reverse the upward thrust of spiraling population growth
This stratagem is based on the observation that academic and intellectual information have minimal, if any, power to change basic human behavior…
Information must be presented in an engaging and entertaining way... and there must be emotional hooks… Valued tangible rewards help...
And some friendly Competition seems to add an Energetic Dimension
Dealing with ancient religious heritage and traditions:
The process begins in India with a global ecumenical and interfaith convocation of religious and spiritual leaders. Perhaps including Mystic-Sadhguru and Ingrid Vanderveldt, founder of NGO: Empowering a Billion Women By 2020, and Pope Francis. Subsequent sessions to be held in Haiti, China, Africa, Abu Dhabi, Buenos Aries, etc.
Thought Leaders must understand and expound on the concept... "be fruitful and multiply" was a sound directive when there were perhaps a few million people on the planet...
But not at 8 Billion. This is no longer a viable directive on a fragile living planetary system.

5. TOURING Shows (SF Mime Troupe). Theatric, emotional
exploration of issues with Global perspective - but
performed by Regional Actors
6. Smaller Families are more prosperous and better educated
More Ecological Education:
1. Why sex in nature (Diversity in plants and animals)
2. Oneness of all humans and animals & Plants. (Ecology message -
whole integrated, interdependent systems, only on Earth)
3. Nature’s balanced ecosystems
4. Effects of Exponential population growth in the last 100 years:
Exhausting Limited resources. Value of trees/forests. Closed interlinked,
interdependent components of whole complex system (Pouring toxic
waste into the ocean bleaches and kills coral reefs and threatens a
multitude of species that live only on coral reefs.)
5. Human impact on Loss of lakes, plants and animals. Multiple times
historical normal loses. Endangered Species disappearance intensified
6. Cattle raised for human consumption is a ferociously destructive force
in fresh water consumption, plus air and water pollution. Consumption
must be radically curtailed.

Unequal reproductive risks
In the developing world, 43 per cent of pregnancies are unplanned (Guttmacher Institute, 2017).
Unintended pregnancy is more prevalent among rural, poor and less educated women. In the majority of countries, fertility rates are higher among the poorer segments of the global population than among the top-income groups.
Rewards also for “husbands “ who wait to marry. - With choices for “wives “ : school, career, or not
Maybe need to encourage new cultural norms.
Instead of having more children parents can make life better for themselves and their children by:
1. Educating them and enhancing their environment
2. Restoring earth planting trees adopting and caring for Wild animals and plants
3. More effective health systems better care, eliminate diseases of infancy
Instead of having more children to care for parents as they age, both parents and children can have richer lives. Communities do not have to be like giant Developed Country Cities, but designed to exist more in harmony with
nature. No need to restructure for automobiles.
Some funding likely from the World Bank

DASH - - Global Population Reduction Strategy
It is understood that exponential population growth is the underlying, driving force behind ALL of our global man-made problems
Is there some way we can manage to make a critical reversal, as global resources are being diminished daily?
