World population growth is still rising, and with it, overconsumption. A few years ago a group of concerned population, health and environment advocates met to discuss why population growth is still the "elephant in the room," as it is connected to so many pressing global and local problems.
This collaborative initiative - led by Transition Earth - aims to develop an informed network of advocates on population issues and provide them with reputable data to inform their campaigns and foster greater collaboration about population growth that is grounded in a holistic, rights-based framework.
We agreed that it is imperative to engage actors from all sectors – especially environmental and human rights organizations and activists, as well as media – on how to best address population growth. With the right information and tools we will find ways to include the topic of population growth and move forward to solve many difficult issues. Once we all realize we only have this one planet as our home and understand that we can work together for the betterment of all will we transition to a thriving world.
