8 Billion: 8 Actions

Our world population has now reached another milestone: 8 billion. From now on, it’s #8billionAndCounting.

Population Matters is one of the world’s leading organisations campaigning to address unsustainable population. Many charities won’t talk about it, many politicians won’t address it and many people don’t understand it. We have much to do. With your help we can achieve more.

Here are eight things you can do today.

  1. Understand the issues: read and share our Mythbusting page.
  2. Take action: take one or more of our current campaign actions.
  3. Dress to impress: Buy one of our ‘8 billion and counting’ t-shirts, with two designs to choose from.
  4. Raise funds: run, walk,swim or cycle 8km for Population Matters
  5. Take a deep dive: share our Population Explorer, a unique interactive online tool, sharing the critical information about population and its impact inan accessible, interactive way.
  6. Donate: give £8 (or however much you can spare) to Population Matters [below]
  7. Spread the word: talk to 8 people about why you believe population matters and ask them to sign up to our newsletter.
  8. Follow us on social media: keep up to date with the latest developments, and share our content. You can find us on Facebook, Twitter/X, Instagram, TikTok and YouTube.
