Pulitzer Center Executive Director Jon Sawyer participated in a roundtable discussion November 1 at the Wilson Center. The session, reporting on population and the environment connections, also featured Dennis Dimick, executive environment editor at National Geographic; Kate Sheppard, environment reporter for Mother Jones; and Heather D’Agnes, foreign service environment officer at USAID.

Sawyer spoke about the Pulitzer Center's dedication to reporting on issues related to population. “It’s an issue – population – that is immensely diverse in its effects and repercussions, and it’s a great opportunity for reporting,” he said.

A wrap-up of the roundtable discussion can be found on the Wilson Center website. The article also includes videos by National Geographic and PBS NewsHour on the world population reaching 7 billion.
