GirlPlanet Conversations video series launches!

Updated: Feb 6

Stable Planet Alliance, in collaboration with Population Balance and GirlPlanet.Earth, has launched #GirlPlanetConversations, a new series of videos featuring young women from Haiti, Mexico, Hong Kong, and the Philippines on childfree choice: "Let's Talk About Population and Sustainability".

This series of short candid interviews with people from across the globe focus on the link between a sustainable population and its impacts on biodiversity, human rights, animal protection and environmental sustainability.

In our first episode, Monique Obligación, an Environmental Educator from Manila, Philippines, discusses her decision to forgo having children to address global warming, noting the carbon footprint of each additional human being on the planet. She and her partner are committed urban gardeners, composters, and reuse advocates who practice a Zero Waste lifestyle.

The second episode features Williane Tomas, on her choice to be childfree for her own professional impact and for the planet. Born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, she has lived in the United States since college. With degrees in Political Science and Nursing, she has volunteered with Doctors Without Borders and the Association of Haitian Women in Boston, providing family-planning education and support to disadvantaged women.

In the third episode of the series we meet Vincie Ho, Executive Director of Rise Travel Institute, a non-profit for sustainable and ethical travel and education. Born in Hong Kong, now living in the United States, Vincie discusses her decision to be childfree through the lens of overdevelopment and a quest for greater reach as a environmental advocate.
