Vermonters for Sustainable Population is small non-profit formed in 2005 out of concern for the population-driven environmental degradation taking place in the US and globally. Population growth has lead to sprawl, excessive use of energy, and natural resource depletion, and it exacerbates the global problems of climate change, loss of biodiversity, poverty, and war. VSP encourages discussion of the relationship between population and these issues and provides information to support those discussions. Learn more about VSP, its policy recommendations, and its 10-point pledge to live more sustainably.

In everything we do, the disciplines of systems thinking and organizational learning inform and shape our work. It is this focus on whole-system analysis, combined with careful listening, truth telling, and visioning, that make the Donella Meadows Institute unique among sustainability organizations. Read More
