The world is shrinking – find your place in it! The world’s population may reach 11 billion by the end of the century. Our resources are dwindling. Climate change will lead to major weather changes around the world. Increasing numbers of species are becoming extinct. Future wars will be fought over water stress. The world is changing fast.
