Spread Social Justice
The United Nations estimates that the human population will level around 10-12 billion people by the end of the century. This prediction is based largely on social and economic indicators, but does not factor in environmental changes over that time. This larger population may exceed the earth's carrying capacity. To keep populations as low as possible, developing nations must move as quickly as possible through stages 2 and 3 of the demographic transition model to minimize population growth.
This can be achieved in many ways including:
Support organizations that teach and finance sustainable agriculture and sustainable development
To reasonably address poverty abroad, we must simultaneously work to alleviate cycles of poverty and social and economic inequalities at home. In the long-term, people may be more likely to act on their concern for environmental issues when they are financially and emotionally more stable.
Some ways to address local issues of poverty and social justice
strengthen the trauma lens for public services including health care, public health, child welfare, and education
support your local shelters, anti-poverty organizations, and political initiatives that advocate for improved social services.
