I just read that the world’s population hit 7 billion and that’s astounding since it wasn’t long ago people were making a big thing about the population reaching 6 billion. I wonder what effects this will bring as you know we are exponentially on our way to be 8 billion even sooner. Water, food and shelter are givens. What might be interesting though is how our ability to communicate instantly around the world could indeed help to solve some of the problems that could arise.
There are schools who use twitter, facebook, youtube etc to get the ‘word’ out there in regards to social justice issues. I know in my last post I was concerned about all the technology and tools that are out there and that I was more than a little bit intimidated by all of them. However, with this glooming world issue in front of us I think it is going to be technology that might be the answer that many of us use to help those who will be in need and give a voice to the ones who need it the most. What do you think?
