How does Population Growth impact Climate Change?

In just 50 years, the world’s population has more than doubled to over 7.4 billion people. That’s more than 7.4 billion bodies that need to be fed, clothed, and kept warm, all requiring a large amount of energy. Alongside this consumption, these 7.4 billion people are also producing vast quantities of waste. Consequently, the demand for energy and the production of waste are significant producers of greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change.

The contest challenged students to demonstrate a connection between world population growth with one global challenge – deforestation, water scarcity or public health – and come up with a sustainable solution all in a 60-second video.
