Population Matters for a Healthy Humanity and Planet
Human beings have a greater impact on the planet than all other animals combined and, as our population grows, so does the impact on sustainability and the environment.
The UN expects world population to rise from 7 billion today to between 8 and 11 billion by 2050. What we do in the next 10 years will largely determine the scale of this increase and therefore the future quality of human life on the planet and the prospects for survival of our fellow species.
We must do our part. That's why we're asking the Government to adopt a national population policy in order to help stabilise and decrease our numbers to an environmentally sustainable level.

I support Population Matters' call for the government to introduce a policy enabling the UK population to stabilise and then gradually to decrease to an environmentally sustainable level.
