Six members of the public tell us why they decided to choose child free or small families

In 2019, Sustainable Population Australia (SPA) undertook a project to find out why people decide to have small or child free families. We interviewed people from all around Australia with diverse backgrounds, ages, occupations and countries of birth. What united them all was their love of the natural environment and a sense of responsibility to the planet when deciding on whether or not to have children.

This video is part of SPA’s Stop At 2 Campaign. We are encouraging a more open discussing around normalising choice around small or child free families. We are supporting a global movement that empowers people worldwide to be empowered and make informed decisions around family planning.
