Student Video Contest - World of 7 Billion

We now live in a world of over 7 billion people and demographers expect us to reach 9 billion by mid-century. Human population growth exacerbates many of the innumerable challenges facing our global society. Taking on these complex challenges and finding solutions will require understanding, cooperation and creativity.

a) how population growth impacts the issue and

b) at least one idea for a sustainable solution.Consider narrowing your focus by concentrating on a subtheme within your topic. Possible subthemes include:

  • Deforestation - erosion, clearing for agriculture/pasture, impacts on climate, biodiversity or habitat loss
  • Public Health - spread of communicable disease, air quality, sanitation, maternal/reproductive health
  • Water Scarcity - aquifer depletion, water conflicts, pollution, impact on girls' education, irrigation
