How can empowering women #MoveTheDate? Starting a family later in life creates a big gap between generations, & older parents tend to've fewer children. These factors contribute to smaller family sizes, thus decreasing demand on the planet.~ @EndOvershoot overshootday.org/portfolio/wome…
Our need for food, water & land, demands for energy and more and more stuff are destroying the Earth’s biodiversity at an alarming rate. Human #populationgrowth is driving habitat destruction, overexploitation of wild species, pollution & #climatechange. populationmatters.org/humanature
Let’s be real: there’s a WHOLE lot of men whose lives, careers, and families have benefited from an abortion (including several “pro-life” GOP Congressmen). Men, we need you right now. You can get through in rooms others can’t. Your power matters. Speak up. This is about us all.

No, #population growth just isn't going to stop anytime soon. There is only a 1-in-4 chance of population stabilisation by 2100. We can bring about the end of growth sooner and achieve a more #sustainable population size - but only if we take action now. #mythbusting1
Actually, we kind of like those humans but you can have too much of a good thing.
What are we waiting for to invest in girls and women? Empowered women who have full control over their own bodies and lives make key contributions to environmental #sustainability and usually choose to have fewer children. populationmatters.org/news/2019/09/m…
This devastating decision in 🇺🇸 will impact millions of women there and around the world. Sorrow. Anger. Solidarity. Determination. Read this thread for more info and how we can helptwitter.com/msichoices/sta…2Fu

Still shocked by the terrible decision on #RoevWade yesterday. Although we knew it was coming, it's still almost unbelievable that this handful of people on #SCOTUS could bring so much harm to so many people. The fight goes on. globalcitizen.org/en/content/roe…
We live in a world that convinces us that we always need more. More babies, more cash, more stuff. This toxic growth-obsessed thinking is at the heart of the environmental crisis. Let's #buyless, #buydurable (ethically produced & environmentally-friendly). populationmatters.org/consume-sustai…

Population Matters supports the right to abortion unequivocally. We are heartbroken by this decision and wholeheartedly support all who are working to protect and restore women's rights, and to address the devastating consequences for people's lives. populationmatters.org/news/2022/06/t…

To be fit for purpose, the #post2020 Global #Biodiversity Framework must include transformative action on direct & indirect drivers of biodiversity loss, including #population growth. WG2020-4 delegates @UNBiodiversity meetings in #Nairobi must take note. populationmatters.org/biodiversity

The European Union’s growth-based economy is driving the depletion of Earth’s finite resources, pushing for non-stop extraction, production, #consumption, and waste, at a speed much faster than Earth’s resources and #nature can regenerate. ~ @Green_Europe meta.eeb.org/2022/06/15/res…
One of ours is to end #populationgrowth globally. "All options need to be exercised... We can make choices about how much of each option we use... but the idea you can leave anything out is impossible." – Intergovernmental Panel on #ClimateChange, 2018 👇populationmatters.org/climate-changeYtwitter.com/WorldBankAfric…6
There is immense #PowerOfPossibility in the countless existing solutions that #MoveTheDate. With them, we can make ourselves more resilient and #MoveTheDate of Earth Overshoot Day. bit.ly/3Q0SROb
