Abstract

Population Connection (Formerly Zero Population Growth), formed in 1968, advocates achieving a sustainable balance between the Earth's people and its resources through population stabilization. Major activities include raising the population issue in the mass media; publishing educational materials; promoting legislative recognition of the consequences of population trends; recruiting and training population activists; helping develop public policy to reduce population growth; and working with teachers and the public school systems in the States to build factual population studies into curricula at all grade levels.

Publications

Population Connection publishes a variety of pamphlets and fact sheets on population growth and legislation intended to reduce unplanned pregnancy. Resource kits are designed to acquaint teachers with materials available for use in their classes. The Reporter, a quarterly magazine, covers a variety of environmental, social, and health-related topics.
