Colorful, informative poster makes the perfect classroom wall decoration – it inspires conversations and questions. What historic events made it possible for our human population to reach 7.6 billion? What does it mean for the Earth’s environment and our human systems to have over 7 billion people on the planet?

On one side of the wall chart you’ll find a timeline with photographs, demographic data points, and visual displays showing the causation behind changing birth and death rates that brought us to a global family of 7.6 billion in 2018.

The other side of the wall chart uses a variety of infographics to show the challenges we face as human numbers continue to increase – from meeting basic human needs to the delicate balance of natural ecosystems.
