Over half of Australia lies above the Tropic of Capricorn, but it is home to only five percent of the population. It is a frontier land with little infrastructure, populated by cattle barons, crocodile hunters and aboriginal tribes.
Great to show how the environment affect how people live or won't live.

Remoteness and liveability
This is a huge chunks of Australia but only a little amount of people live there.
New territory in Australia!❤️❤️

This is exactly why I am interested in collaborative online international learning as well as adaptive learning.
What are the opportunities to integrate bridge building learning activities in an cirriculum, via online learning? Any subject any time. Even better, how to empower students to create self-directed study accross 'walls'? Gaming?
What types of stories will 'retell' this scenario? Reframe perspectives? What mediums can they be told through to reach the appropriate audiences?
Unfortunately, for our security, we must live in a Walled World
It appears India is constructing a 2,500-mile long fence around its neighboring country Bangladesh. The barbed wire fence may have been built due to that fact India has one of the largest populations in the world and they do not want the struggling people of Bangladesh to enter their country. Also, areas around the fence are becoming dangerous, with more than 1,000 people killed by border patrol and criminals. There are not many jobs in Bangladesh and the people are having trouble finding clean drinkable water. Lastly, the people may be fleeing into India hoping to find work and an improved lifestyle.

Picture this: Tourists visiting one of your city's most prominent attractions are unable to see it because of smog, haze and a bevy of other airborne pollutants. What's the solution?
H/E Interaction - pollution in China
While this is a kind of comical fascade for tourists, it draws attention to the insane amounts of pollution present in Hong Kong. The ships that dock in one of the world's largest ports are a great contributor to the thick smog that hovers over the city in addition to the normal urban pollutants like traffic, smoking and industry. Pollution is a major problem in all urban cities and government regulation needs to crack down on the subject because the dense smog that citizens are inhaling all day is slowly killing them.
Pollution leads to various cancers and other health problems which in China may help decrease the population but it will cause many more problems than it will solve. Hong Kong is an urban megacity center where thousands of corporations have their headquarters and important offices and pollution may get bad enough to drive certain companies out. Pollution can also destroy the value of any raw goods that come from the areas or perhaps even poison certain factory made products. With smog this thick, the pollutants are everywhere and can do serious damage to the environement and those who inhabit it.
Well this is certainly one way of ‘solving’ their pollution problem. Tourists upset, no problem, give them a backdrop to pose in front of. I find this just crazy; rather than trying to clean up the air the government is instead covering over the problem.
That is sick! Pollution is a major problem in Hong Kong due to its busy urban environment. However, setting up a fake skyline for tourists to pose in front of is not the solution. The solution is taking precautions and finding ways to cut back on the pollution so that the haze and pollution does not escalate.
