“It’s a small world.”
A video on population growth from worldpopulationhistory.org gives the old expression new meaning. Here are the facts:
- In just about 200 years, the global population exploded from roughly 900 million people to more than 7.3 billion.
- We are headed towards roughly 10 billion.
But this trend of explosive growth is changing. Parents are choosing smaller families, and they’re investing more in each child. We can accelerate that trend, improve children’s well-being and equality of opportunity, and restore our environment and democracies, simply by working together.
