We are drawing attention to the global problems and their causes, and offering the most effective solution to the ecological problems. Through our trainings and other activities, we are promoting prevention. Contraception is a basic human right (UN, 1968), yet, half of the contraceptions occur against the will of the couples, which has devastating humanitarian and ecological consequences. Population has a distinguished ecological role, however, we are not only dealing with population growth. Our trainings also address non-material happiness.
We would like to draw attention to the global problems and their causes, so that humanity “comes to its senses”! Simultaneously, we are offering a solution to the ecological problems, and the most effective possible at that; through our trainings and other activities, we are promoting prevention.
It is the right of every member of future generations to be conceived as a child wanted by both parents, for himself/herself (and not for of some interest), who, as a grown-up could say: “I couldn’t even wish for more loving and prepared parents, a warmer home, or a better age”.
Yet, almost half of the conceptions occur against the will of the couples. The unmet need for contraception is enormous, which has devastating humanitarian and ecological consequences. Hundreds of millions of women dread an accidental pregnancy. Every year, about ten million underage girls give birth, and tens of millions of tragic child fates start as accidental pregnancies. Every year, a million babies die just because they were born less than a year before the previous childbirth, and their mother’s body couldn’t even recover from the previous pregnancy.
Population growth increases unwanted consumption (e.g. commuting, walls, locks, security services, etc), while hindering the increase of efficiency (e.g. less resources are available for environmentally friendly investments because of it), and for this reason, population has a distinguished ecological role, and we are treating it as such.
However, we are not only dealing with population growth. The “Little Prince life strategy”, which is featured in our trainings, highlights that the truly important things in the world do not cost money, and that meeting most of our needs don’t necessarily require material goods.
