Population Matters

Population Matters is a UK-based charity working globally to achieve a sustainable future for people and planet. 

Our Vision is a future in which a stable human population co-exists in harmony with nature and prospers on a healthy planet, to the benefit of all.

Our Mission is to drive positive, large-scale action through fostering choices that help achieve a sustainable human population and regenerate our environment. 

Our Approach is to campaign, inform, undertake research and do all we can to encourage an open, fair-minded and constructive debate about population. We aim to ensure people and policymakers understand the vital importance of addressing population and unsustainable consumption together, and to generate policy changes which empower people to take positive action wherever they live.

  • We promote positive, practical, ethical solutions – encouraging smaller families, inspiring people to consume sustainably, with the aim of enabling everyone to enjoy a decent quality of life whilst respecting and sustaining the natural ecosystems upon which all life on earth depends.
  • We empower informed choice. In a world of finite resources our reproductive and consumption choices are critical for achieving that vision of humanity in harmony with nature, prospering on a healthy planet.
  • We believe everyone should have the freedom and ability to choose a smaller family. 
  • We emphatically and proudly support human rights, women’s empowerment and global justice.

Population Matters benefits from the support of an impressive range of Patrons and Advisors, who include: Sir David Attenborough, Dame Jane Goodall, Judy Ling Wong, Chris Packham, Jonathon Porritt and Dr Muhtari Aminu-Kano.
