Do you support the simple ideas that 1) parents should be ready before they have kids, 2) that we have a right to distribute resources to give all kids an eco-social Fair Start in life, and that 3) a universal ethic of smaller families for all is the best way to restore nature? Peer-reviewed research shows that prioritizing this suite of policy foci has ten to twenty times the impact on climate and other crises, relative to most other changes we can make.
Dozens of groups from the child protection, animal welfare, environmental protection, and human rights and democracy sectors are joining various coalitions that further some version of Fair Start. Groups like WildEarth Guardians, World Population Balance, ProVeg International, PETA, Brighter Green, Population Matters, and Seeding Sovereignty are working on various campaigns – from urging the UN to promote smaller families, to leaning on Joe Biden to issue a declaration of climate emergency based on a -300ppm standard, to supporting litigation in the U.S. that requires ecocentric (300 ppm o less) solutions to the climate crisis as constitutional right. These campaigns in one way or another help further every child’s fundamental human right to an eco-social Fair Start in life.
