The World of 7 Billion contest is a project of the Population Education program, provider of K-12 classroom resources and professional development opportunities. The contest is run every school year.
The contest first ran during the 2010-2011 school year as a “teachable moment” around world population reaching 7 billion.
Create a short video – up to 60 seconds – about human population growth that highlights one of the following global challenges: Climate Change, Ocean Health, or Rapid Urbanization. All videos must include:
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:
- Climate Change – weather events and patterns, impact on
agriculture, impact on coastal cities, human health, ecosystem disruption
- Ocean Health – overfishing, coral bleaching, climate regulation, habitat loss, pollution, dead zones
- Rapid Urbanization – sprawl, sanitation, air and water quality, megacities, migration, slums and informal settlements
Deadline for submissions is February 23, 2017.
