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.

a) how population growth impacts the issue

b) at least one idea for a sustainable solution.
