How will the planet cope with 9.6 billion people by 2050?
With the world's population due to peak at 9.6 billion by 2050, our planet is becoming a very crowded place. Global population growth brings with it a range of complex issues around sustainability and the environment so what does 9.6 billion people mean in terms of international economic and social co-operation and development?
Should there be a future campaign to create awareness and should we encourage a slow down on population growth?
Your thoughts, opinions and ideas on how to deal with the future growth would be appreciated.
Closing Statement from Renee Chambers
Interesting thoughts and opinions from the TED community and I enjoyed reading your comments.
My personal feeling is that there should be a slow down on population growth and we need some type of global campaign to get this message across.
