Declaration of Principles

We, the European Population Alliance and its individual member organisations, are united in our endorsement of the Joint International Position Statement on Population and the Environment, and of the following Declaration of Principles, while recognising that we are independent organisations with our own national policies, opinions and activities.


We are concerned about the impact of human numbers and consumption on resources and the environment, threatening future bio-physical sustainability and quality of life.

We take account of the interests of future generations and of other species.

We fully respect the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the European Convention on Human Rights, and reject discrimination based on race, gender, culture, or religion.

We take an evidence-based approach to all issues.

We cooperate only with organisations which accept the democratic framework.

We are fully independent of political parties.
