Due February 28th, 2019 - 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.

Create a short video about human population growth that highlights one of the following global challenges: Preserving Biodiversity, Sustainable Resource Use, Protecting Human Rights.

All videos must include:
  a) how population growth impacts the issue
  b) at least one idea for a sustainable solution.

Consider narrowing your focus by concentrating on a subtheme within your topic.

Possible subthemes include:
  *Preserving Biodiversity – Habitat destruction/fragmentation, ecosystem diversity, coral reefs, deforestation, pollinators, extinction, invasive species
  *Sustainable Resource Use – Energy, fossil fuel use, single-use products, diet, overfishing, global inequities in consumption
  *Protecting Human Rights – Poverty, barriers to education, women and girls, forced migration, environmental/social justice, economic security
