The world population and what about me ?
Population and Societies
n° 412, May 2005
After reaching 6 billion in 1999, the world population will attain 6.5 billion this year and should total 7 billion in seven years’ time, in 2012 or 2013. To inform the public about key population issues, answer their most frequently asked questions and dispel a few myths, an exhibition called “The world population… and what about me?” has been running since 5 April at the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie science museum in Paris. Gilles Pison and Sabine Belloc, the exhibition organizers, explain the show’s content and approach.
