We all have a role to play in creating a sustainable, equitable world for future generations.

Overpopulation threatens the quality of life for people everywhere. Population Connection is the national grassroots population organization that educates young people and advocates progressive action to stabilize world population at a level that can be sustained by Earth’s resources.

The best solution to the climate crisis is through the empowerment of women and girls by expanding access to family planning and education. Stopping population growth through these human-rights focused initiatives is one of the TOP interventions we can take to reduce our carbon footprint in the coming decades.
