All women are invited to attend Savvy Women Exchanging Relevant Views (SWERV) to hear disaster specialist Eric D. Rasmussen, MD and chief of Infinitum Humanitarian Systems, discuss how we can welcome an additional 2 billion people to Earth by 2050 and still be able to provide everyone daily with a few liters of water, 2,000 calories and shelter from the changing climate — without creating extra planets.
