About the Contest

Through the World of 8 Billion student video contest, middle and high schoolers are given the opportunity to think critically about global challenges related to population and share their thoughts. This year students were challenged to explain how population growth impacts climate change, gender equality, or waste, and offer an idea for a sustainable solution.
