7billion logoThe world’s population reached seven billion in October 2011. This unique moment in human history represented both an achievement and a challenge. A world of seven billion has implications for sustainability, urbanization, access to health services and youth empowerment – however, it also offers a rare call-to-action opportunity to renew global commitment for a healthy and sustainable world.

On World Population Day 2011, 11 July, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) launched a global initiative, '7 Billion Actions', to highlight the challenges, opportunities and actions that will shape our common future as the world population reached 7 billion.

In a world of 7 Billion people every organization and individual has a unique role and special responsibility. Working together, incremental actions will create exponential results. Take action today, you can make a difference in others’ lives.
