World Population Day
Aims of World Population day
World Population Day is celebrated every year on July 11 all over the world. It is a global awareness campaign designated to draw attention toward the issues of growing population and to show everyone just how vulnerable we are as a population. Moreover, it aims to educate young people to avoid unwanted pregnancies and STD. Population crisis can be eliminated by ensuring easy access to reproductive health services.
7.0 Billion Solutions
Population is growing faster than ever! In 1989 the Governing Council of the United Nations Development Program suggested that attention should be focused on issues like sustainability and urbanization. World population has reached 7.4 billion people and is expected to reach 9.5 billion by 2050. This tremendous increase has its roots in the unprecedented decrease in mortality that began in the 19th century in the more developed parts of the world. However, overpopulation is something which can be solved with resources we possess.
