Abstract
In a world facing immense environmental and social challenges, how should responsible citizens think about population matters? This talk proposes a framework rooted in the values of justice, sustainability, and the flourishing of life. It then briefly considers what personal procreation decisions and what family planning and immigration policies might follow from such a framework.
