About Us

Our Mission

Transition Earth aims to increase awareness on the effects of increasing population growth and unsustainable economic growth on people and the planet.  All people around the world have a fundamental right to preserve or improve their quality of life and that of their families and communities.

We are a project of Earth Island Institute.   Formerly it was the Institute for Population Studies/HowMany.org.
