An ongoing endeavor at CSIS for over 20 years, Seven Revolutions addresses and analyzes the key policy challenges that policymakers, business figures, and global leaders will face out to the year 2035 and beyond.

UNFPA Speaker Edward Wright – “Global Population: Letting Human Rights Drive Development”
Global population is a field where human rights rule.  Enabling each woman to plan how many children she has, and then to give birth safely, is a pathway that nearly every developed society has undergone in its progression to its current state.  And yet in the developing world almost 300 thousand women still die giving birth each year, and more than 220 million women are not able to access modern family planning. These challenges lie at the heart of the work of the United Nations Population Fund, striving to deliver a world wherever pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe and every young person can reach their potential. 

The United Nations has just agreed on a course of action to bring about sustainable development for the next 15 years, and UNFPA's work is at its core. This presentation will illustrate how the individual rights of today's women and 1.8 billion young people are one of the most vital factors in determining the wellbeing of the world tomorrow.

“The Great Japanese Retirement” Documentary
This irreverent and thought-provoking look at Japanese society examines the effects on the Japanese economy caused by the country's rapidly aging population. While the global population keeps growing, Japan's is shrinking. Low fertility, low birth rates and longer life expectancy leaves Japan with an old and rapidly aging population – with staggering economic and social implications. This documentary asks, what is the effect on the economy with a massive pension and welfare bill falling on a shrinking workforce? And what does the fate of this creaking population mean for the rest of the world?
