I wanted to share an interesting and thought provoking eye-opener about how the world might look if we represented it as 100 people. This idea was inspired by the writings of Donella Meadows, a woman who dedicated her activism to creating models of sustainability, and adapted into a web based mini-film by Allyson Lucca. Here’s a teaser excerpt:
If we could turn the population of the earth into a small community of 100 people, keeping the same proportions we have today, it would be something like this:
14 Americans (from North and South America)
01 Australian (Oceania)
67 are not christian
33 are christian (Catholics, Protestants and Orthodox)
It’s definitely worth going to take a look at yourself.
