We are living through the greatest population bust in human history.
The future belongs to those who show up.

Dec 01 2023 | Austin

Birth rates are falling below replacement level all over the world.

By the end of the century, nearly every country on earth will have a shrinking population, and economic systems dependent on reliable growth will collapse. Thousands of unique cultures and populations will be snuffed out.

Governments have tried everything in the standard technocratic toolset – tax incentives, subsidized childcare, propaganda – and nothing has worked.

We are gathering the brightest minds in the world in search of new solutions.


  • Day 1: public, live-streamed symposium discussing various perspectives on this problem: environmental, physiological, sociological, cultural.


  • Day 2: a closed-door, facilitated private workshop, where experts and VIP attendees will meet in groups to share insights and develop solutions.

Natal Conference has no political or ideological goal other than a world in which our children can have grandchildren. If you are concerned about collapsing fertility, the economic challenges of having children, the increasing difficulty of dating for men and women, we want to hear from you.
