Sustainable Population Australia (SPA) is an Australian, non-partisan, special advocacy group that seeks to establish an ecologically sustainable human population. It works on many fronts to encourage informed public debate about how Australia and the world can achieve an ecologically, socially and economically sustainable population.
SPA's local activities are run by its 6 state brances: ACT, NSW, SA & NT, Vic & Tas, Qld and WA. Some branches hold regular meetings but the main link between members is the Newsletter, produced four times a year. This provides members with information and expert opinion to rebut the many myths about sustainability and population that one hears in conversation or sees in the press.
SPA was founded in Canberra in 1988 as Australians for an Ecologically Sustainable Population.
