Environmental Activists Speak Out Globally in New Awareness Campaign

Dead Elephant - It's no secret that we are exploiting our planet and running out of resources at the speed of light, but many people refuse to take notice. These unbelievable photos of environmental damage, collected into a book by environmental awareness platform Global Population Speak Out, show the harsh realities of the ecological and social tragedies that Earth is suffering. Its title: "Overdevelopment, Overpopulation, Overshoot." PRESS RELEASE: SOUTH BURLINGTON, VT - Population Media Center is giving away more than four thousand copies of a dramatic new coffee table book beginning February 16th, 2015. Overdevelopment, Overpopulation, Overshoot (OVER) features more than 300 pages of stunning, full-spread photography and is the centerpiece of the 2015 Global Population Speak Out ("Speak Out") created in partnership with Population Institute. Speak Out uses social media, word-of-mouth and direct action to engage opinion-leaders, scientists and citizens of the world to respond creatively to environmental degradation. Speak Out emphasizes elements of environmental protection that are rarely discussed: promoting human rights and human health as strong, indispensable solutions to preserving the rights of other species to exist and the health of the planet. "Speak Out works to equip those already engaged in addressing environmental concerns with strong materials and messages to help them raise awareness and catalyze change," says Joe Bish, Director of Issues Advocacy at Population Media Center, one of the organizations working on Speak Out. "We are really looking forward to crowd-sourced, creative ideas for how to put this amazing book to work as an agent of positive change." Speak Out organizers are granting the free copies of OVER to people and organizations around the world who can be ambassadors of information and inspiration, and promise personalized delivery to policymakers, opinion leaders, activists, allied organizations, and other audiences.
