Young Activists and Environmental Activists Want Population Stabilization

We commissioned the highly regarded firm Lake Research Partners to conduct two national surveys this past summer. We sought to determine how 18–35-year-old progressive activists and environmental activists of all ages view the population issue.

The results were quite encouraging and may help dispel the myth that people these days don’t care about population growth. With today’s endless torrent of news and information (and misinformation), it’s good to know that engaged citizens want to take action on behalf of population stabilization.
