This is a great way to visualize global migration patterns.  Where are people migrating to Brazil coming from?  What countries are Brazilians migrating to?  Here are the answers to these types of questions for every country.

Es un grafic molt atractiu. Interessant per muntar treballs de grup, investigants païssos concrets

The Rise of Megacities

The Rise of Megacities | Mrs. Nesbitt's Human Geography World | Scoop.it
By 2025, the developing world will be home to 29 megacities.

 

Through this interactive mapping feature with rich call-out boxes, the reader can explore the latest UN estimates and forecasts on the growth of megacities (urban areas with over 10 million residents).  These 'cities on steroids' have been growing tremendously since the 1950s and present a unique set of geographic challenges and opportunities for their residents.

If that's what is predicted for 2025, how populated will our world be by 2050? Scary to think about.

TED Talks Hans Rosling had a question: Do some religions have a higher birth rate than others -- and how does this affect global population growth? Speaking at the TEDxSummit in Doha, Qatar, he graphs data over time and across religions.

"Japan as we know it is doomed...."

 

A nation that is resistant to immigration must face a 'revolution'.  Estimates say they will need 10 million immigrants between now and 2050 to stave off collapse.  Currently their TFR is 1.3, well below replacement level.
