Student Video Contest
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 – 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
