Due February 27th, 2020 - 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: Sustaining Water Systems, Ensuring Economic Opportunities, Improving Climate Resiliency

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:
  *Sustaining Water Systems – Agricultural pollution, aquifer depletion, sanitation infrastructure, waste disposal, modifying waterways (dams, levees), safe drinking water
  *Improving Climate Resiliency – Climate migrants, poor urban planning, extreme weather events, agricultural productivity, disease evolution, global inequity in climate adaptation
  *Ensuring Economic Opportunities – Gender wage gap, global wealth inequality, workers’ rights, poverty cycle, microfinance, green jobs
