  3. Commit to run, walk,swim or cycle 8km and help raise funds for Population Matters
  4. Stop and think about population for 8 minutes (set those timers!), or even or have a conversation with someone about our collective impact on the planet
  5. Donate £8 (or however much you can spare) to Population Matters [below]
  6. Take one or more of our current campaign actions
  7. Talk to 8 people about why you believe population matters and ask them to sign up to our newsletter or delve into our Population Explorer
