Position Statement on Population

Already 522 Signatures!

We take the position that there is a fundamental  conflict between population growth and environmental protection, a sustainable economy, and the health and well-being of our people.

While SPA rejects wasteful over-consumption, we do believe that all Australians deserve at least a modestly comfortable lifestyle. But this comes with an ecological price-tag which limits the numbers we can sustainably support without degrading our resources and ecosystems. Australia has now exceeded those numbers.

In the best interests of our land and people, the SPA position calls for a stabilised Australian population, maintained safely within ecological limits.


– SPA strongly and unequivocally denounces racism. Our population position is purely about numbers and lifestyles, and how they combine to impact our long-term ecological responsibilities.

– SPA believes Australia should lead by example on the global stage, being generous in its assistance to those in need, both financially and through the sharing of knowledge.
