Last month I shared a resource from National Geographic called A Party for 7 Billion. That video is about the space required to hold a gathering of 7 billion people. This morning I found another video designed to complement National Geographic’s January cover topic “Population 7 Billion.” The video below gives a quick overview of how the population grew to nearly 7 billion and the challenges presented by a population of 7 billion.
Applications for Education
After watching this 3 minute video, ask your students to develop and propose their own responses to the challenges presented by a growing population.
