If there were only 100 people in the world, would we fight harder for equality? In just over two minutes, this video (by reducing stats on the world population to a sample of just 100 people) breaks down issues like:
- Income inequality
- Food consumption and general health (obesity rates and hunger)
- Access to clean water
- Access to housing and shelter
- Access to global connectivity via the web
- Technological consumption in (mobile phone ownership and access)
- Access to post-secondary education
One of the biggest challenges to “thinking globally” is dealing with the scale of numbers that accompany the information coming in. With a manageable scale of 100 people, inequalities can be visualized more clearly. And with each number represented by a stick figure, the video illustrates human impact in place of statistics.
