Population Media Center helps spark positive behavior change all around the world. Our contribution to solving the population challenge is creating characters and stories that illustrate the benefits of smaller families to our audiences. This results in improved health outcomes for mothers and children and improved ecological well-being for the planet.
- Our listeners in the Democratic Republic of Congo were 1.8 times more likely than non-listeners to say that their ideal family size is three children or fewer.
- Our listeners in Rwanda were 1.5 times more likely than non-listeners to desire three or fewer children, as opposed to four or more.
- Our show, East Los High, was nominated for six Daytime Emmys. It has been written about in the American Journal of Public Health for its impact on adolescent sexual and reproductive health.
Even as climate change, environmental degradation, and other civilizational challenges gain momentum, standard United Nation projections show human population increasing to 9.7 billion by 2050 — and nearly 11 billion by 2100. Judicious investments and effective actions are required to avoid these scenarios.
