Sustainable lifestyles

We all know that we live in a world with limited resources. As we all consume resources and the number of people grows, we are heading for trouble.

Population Matters is asking people to focus on personal well-being and reducing waste rather than accumulating more and more possessions. In a finite world, the moral choice is to consider the needs of poorer communities, members of other species and future generations.

We are also asking governments to alleviate poverty and promote equality. A world of deep inequality is a recipe for continued conflict and is not truly sustainable.

We operate at local, national and international levels, conducting research, raising awareness and promoting government policy change.

We have been around for more than 20 years and have members throughout the world. We partner with other organizations to promote sustainable lifestyles, including smaller families, to create a brighter future.

Our members support us with their donations and through promoting population awareness in a variety of ways — in educational institutions and the media; at events; and by making family, friends, neighbours and government officials more aware of the issues.
