National Geographic :: 7 Billion
National Geographic magazine has launched their projected focus for their latest project :: 7 Billion. Yup, you might have guessed it already but 7 Billion is the number of people on the planet.
“With the worldwide population expected to exceed seven billion in 2011, National Geographic magazine offers a 7-part series examining specific challenges and solutions to the issues we face. The magazine introduces the series with its January cover story “7 Billion,” offering a broad overview of demographic trends that got us to today and will impact us all tomorrow.”
They launched this animated piece highlighting the significance of that number, and the application of it to all the people on the planet.
Not a normal post for Dont Party, but the focus of this series is relevant to us all. So in some light the focus for the greater good is applicable to us!
