Overpopulation of the planet
Today, modern students are concerned not only with studies and the session, but also with the pressing problems of all mankind. Therefore, on February 28, in the art space “ComeIn” at the lecture on overpopulation of the planet from the teacher of the Institute of Mathematics and Mechanics K (P) FU Andrei Novikov there were no empty seats.
Looking at the population density map of the whole world, you can see that the Earth is able to accommodate a very large number of people. But we should not forget that due to the growth of the population of the planet, the volume of used natural resources, areas for agricultural and industrial needs, the amount of harmful emissions, household waste, the destruction of nature’s biodiversity, etc., increase. Only by understanding the consequences of the misuse of resources can each of us take some steps to save the lives of millions.
Why is the population of the planet constantly growing? What is the problem of overpopulation? What can each person do to solve it?
The lecture was incredibly interesting and the participants could not disperse for a long time, remaining for further discussion after the event.
