Day of 7 Billion

31 October 2011

New York and Worldwide

A high-level event at the United Nations will mark the world population reaching 7 Billion. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will announce the milestone, and issue a call to action to world leaders to meet the challenges that a growing population poses.

A world of 7 billion has implications for sustainability, urbanization, access to health services and youth empowerment. It is also an opportunity to renew global commitment for a healthy and sustainable world. 7 Billion Actions, a global movement for all humanity, was established by the United Nations Population Fund to highlight positive action by individuals and organizations and inspire others to join the movement.
