Why join?

Population affects everyone’s well-being, other species and humanity’s future on our one planet. 

Population Matters is one of the foremost charities campaigning on the issue of population globally, and the only UK charity whose mission is to raise awareness of the environmental impact of our growing numbers.

Your support will help create a better future for you, your children and grandchildren and many generations to come.

You’ll be supporting campaigns, helping to lobby governments worldwide and ask other charities to recognise that population size also matters to the causes they promote. Your donations will help champion women’s rights and advocate for smaller families at home and abroad.

We’ll be able to attend international events, respond to consultations, speak at policy-level meetings and publish research reports – all of which will amplify our voice and our message that population matters.

You can also make a single donation, fundraise for us or leave us a lasting legacy with a gift in your will.
