In the video above, for example, the authors focused on population’s impact on the environment and how gender equality and education reduce population growth.
If you’re 14 to 18 years old, we want you to tell a population story. Population growth, which contributes to so many environmental and social challenges, can be addressed by changes such as enhancing human rights and improving education. The photos below may provide you with ideas to consider as you create a short video exploring human population growth and its effects and discussing whether education, gender equality, or other changes can slow, end, or reverse population growth.
