Population Matters campaigns to achieve a sustainable human population, to protect the natural world and improve people’s lives. 

We promote positive, practical, ethical solutions – encouraging smaller families, inspiring people to reduce excessive consumption and helping us all to live within our planet’s natural limits. We believe everyone should have the freedom and ability to choose a smaller family and support human rights, women’s empowerment and global justice.

Through our campaigning, advocacy and education work we are influencing policymakers, communities and individuals to make the changes needed for a healthy planet and a decent standard of living for all, now and in the future.
