We had an amazing lecture about urbanization. To just say the lecture was amazing is a bit of an understatement. I found the lecture stimulating, challenging, overwhelming, engaging—still processing ALL the notes I took! (While nursing the ache in my hand from how quickly I was writing!) Though I am not typically one for statistics, I actually have a few to share with you:
Did you know the world’s population officially is now 7 billion?
In 2011 over 52% of the world’s population lived in cities?
As the population of the world increases so too will the percentage of those living (moving, migrating) to cities! This is an average of over 80 million people per year moving to cities as urban populations are increasing?
Sharing is Caring 😀
