Graduate student, Emma Spett, believes it's wise to be deliberate about bringing children into the world. Emma raises important questions like: "Why does everyone need their own genetic offspring to be fulfilled?" "Is freedom to choose more important than the sustained existence of our ecological and human systems?"
Emma has also shared her concerns in commentary published by Having Kids and Parenting in the Anthropocene. She is a graduate student at the University of Vermont in Community Development and Applied Economics and a fellow at the Gund Institute for Ecological Economics.
