Series 7 Billion--Part 3 of 7

In this week of 7 billion awareness, both globally and here on GTG, this is a good video that highlights the environmental impacts highlighted in this video.  One of my personal favorites in the video is the Sir David Attenborough quote.

Another great place to go to investigated the impact of 7 billion for sustainability, urbanization, health care services & more is 7 Billion Actions.  This site also was developed through the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), which is leading this global campaign to build awareness around the perks and perils of 7 billion people. 

From their website, there objectives are focused around 7 major themes:
  • Poverty and inequality;
  • Women and girls empowerment;
  • Reproductive health and rights;
  • Young people;
  • Ageing population;
  • Environment;
  • Urbanization.
Go to their website, view a story, share a story, take part in one or more of 7 billion actions!!
