I feel like I should be offended by being so categorized as a generaton, but strangely I'm not. I think this graphic accurately represents people my age.

Gen X is going to have a lot of problems to fix that was left for them by their ancestors

Development and Demographic Changes: "The last woman..".

Development and Demographic Changes: "The last woman..". | population geography | Scoop.it

While global population now is almost reaching 7 billion, mainly to due high birth rates in the developing world, many of the more developed parts of Asia (and elsewhere) are facing shrinking population as fewer women are choosing to marry and have children. 

 

This is a very concrete way to discuss the Demographic Transition Model and population issues around the world.   Cultural values shifting, globalization and demographics all merge together in this issue.

This is absolutely shocking! I never thought this was possible. It is even more shocking that it is so common within many countries and not just Hong Kong. The only two countries that seem to be in good standings are Canada and Brazil. All other 14 are at risk during the years 3000 to about 3050. Now due to this shrinking in female population then leading to just shrinking in population in general, wouldn't this then lead to a serious decrease in our global population and be for the better. Could this then mean more resources and less poverty? Although another idea that just came to mind, this situation would benefit India because they value males over females. The male is favored because they inherit land, pass on the family name, and financially provide for the parents. Overall this female population decline just merges a variety of concerns.

I've showed this movie once in a while during the Urban unit and the kids enjoy it. "Edutainment"

It seems a mixture of vignettes, with some academic founding mixed in. Warning: There was one F-bomb in the movie.
