The “World of 7 Billion” video contest is open to students from sixth through 12th grades.
Students are asked to create a short video, up to 60 seconds, about human population growth that highlights one of the following global challenges: climate change, ocean health, or rapid urbanization.
All videos must include how population growth has an impact on the issue, and at least one idea for a sustainable solution.
The deadline for submissions is Feb. 23 and prizes range from $250 to $1,000. Visit Worldof7Billion.org for more information.
Suggestions for a sub-theme within a topic might include weather events and patterns, over-fishing and sprawl and slums.
