Tackling the Overpopulation Myth and Climate Change

The climate crisis disproportionately affects those living in the global South, with potentially devastating impacts on maternal and infant health, access to safe birthing and abortion conditions and reproductive autonomy. Meanwhile, the discourse around the environmental impacts of reproduction has been tainted by racist myths about overpopulation and fertility and a history of forced sterilisation of indigenous and ethnic minority groups.

Featuring academic panel members across the fields of biological sciences, sociology, gender studies and history, these seminars discuss how climate change and reproductive justice intersect. We will address topics such as the overpopulation myth, environmental racism, and social inequalities utilising reproductive justice as our framework and highlight the centrality of reproduction as a form of political intervention.
