Call For Papers

As the global population continues to increase at an alarming rate, the world, as a whole, now faces the issue of overpopulation.

If the world’s natural resource consumption and environmental pollution/destruction continue at their current pace, then the earth will eventually no longer be able to sustain all of its inhabitants. Social change is the only way to prevent this. How can we do this and who will support eventual social change’s requirements? Would religion/religious devotees sustain such changes or, on the contrary, will they resist them?

On the other hand, the world’s religious traditions possess particular motivational qualities with respect to people’s worldviews and behaviors. All of the world’s religious traditions are responding, in some way, to overpopulation. Traditions in isolation, however, do not address the complexities of the current ecological crisis. Overpopulation requires a broader approach that unites the respective responses, which requires an honest, open dialogue, for a benefit of a higher interest than one’s.
