Virtue-signalling enough to embarrass even virtue-signallers. An award for promising to do nothing in the future. I thought awards for accomplishments.

Ah I see. Well 1969 was a different time I guess.
That it was. The smoke smelled different back then.
Loving the BA, so true.
It would be better still if rather than doing nothing in the future, they said nothing.

Might influence others to stick to 2 rather than the 10 kids and counting types......

I doubt middle Africa will even get to hear the message never mind be influenced by it.
Didn't Prince PHilip say something similar in the 1960s?
So many nice people on AB these days!
They did not nominate themselves for the award, deliberately insulting someone by changing their name is the lowest form of wit!
Nasty nasty nasty
Roy....did you not take notice of the other individuals who were given awards...

// They include Wendo Aszed, founder of a women's empowerment and community health project in rural Kenya, Emma Gannon, author of Olive, a best-selling novel addressing the choice to be child-free, and Nairashe Maritsa, a teenager fighting child marriage in Zimbabwe. //

True (I think), but they didn't have to accept it & look ridiculous.
Perlease!

Yes, I did.
Regardless...what is your point?
And if they had declined the award, what would all the misery-guts of AB have to say?

Not sure the message is aimed at middle Africa. People in the affluent west are the biggest users (and wasters) of the world’s resources. It is them that should have small families.
I'll let you figure that out, Roy.
You don't know what your point is or your going to be childish and not tell me?

They do have small families in the west, Sunk.

If "Population Matters" really cared about over-population it would give awards only to those couples had no children, with perhaps a runner-up prize to those who only had one. Those with two or more would be asked to make a donation which doubled with every successive child above two.
//People in the affluent west are the biggest users (and wasters) of the world’s resources. It is them that should have small families.//

So people in "affluent" areas who can afford to give their children a half-decent life should have fewer children whilst those who haven't got a pot to pee in should have as many as they like (presumably on the basis that, since so many of them die at an early age, they must churn out ever increasing numbers to keep their population growing).
The difficulty in encouraging such an initiative in the UK is that the more children you have, the more money the state (i.e. taxpayers) give to you, something the immigrant population finds marvellous & I find incomprehensible.
Ten couples get an award, ten charities benefit - nice.
