“World of 7 Billion” Videos Make a Difference-Watch Them Now!

I think young people are going to have a huge impact on the future of farming and food production and I recently learned about an awesome video contest that high school age students from around the world participated in to share their thoughts and plans about the future of the world.

The competition encouraged high school students around the world to create and enter videos on population growth relating to one of three topics: universal education; diminishing farmland; and the sixth mass extinction. 13 students earned top recognition with their videos. Here are some projects that I loved I wanted to share with you:

Our Future Food Demand– by Madison Bernier; First Colonial High School, Virginia Beach, VA

What Would You Sacrifice for an Education?- by Andrew Schwenn; Coppell High School, Coppell, TX

Beef Up Sustainable Farming– by Cynthia Zhou; Sir Winston Churchill Secondary School Vancouver, BC, Canada

We Did This to Ourselves– by Elizabeth Hwang; Pullman High School, Pullman, WA

*This student is from Pullman, Washington-Go Cougs!

Sixth Mass Extinction– by Angel Nkwonta; Pullman High School, Pullman WA

*This student is from Pullman, Washington-Go Cougs!

I was impressed by all of the videos and touched that members of my generation were so called to care about the future of the environment. Here are all the videos: https://www.worldof7billion.org/student-video-contest/2015-winners/
