Yes, the world is overpopulated, but the problem is NOT too big to solve. In this roundtable discussion we’ve convened the “overpopulation solution team” from World Population Balance to offer a “sustainable future” scenario. The team paints a picture of the wonderful world that results from a population sized to match our planet. They enumerate key benefits to having fewer people; including more affordable housing, a welcome mat for migrants, better care and nurturing of our children, and happier parents. People would be valued more, educational opportunities improve, and we might even enjoy a 20-hour work week.
