The World's Most Densely Populated Cities

The World's Most Densely Populated Cities | Mrs. Welle's AP Human Geography | Scoop.it
The growth of these cities will create a host of environmental and health problems.

 

By 2210, the global population is expected to grow from just more than 7 billion to 11.3 billion — with 87 percent of the population living in urban areas, according to a new working paper by researchers from NYU’s Marron Institute.

Most of these individuals will be in what’s now the developing world — creating a host of environmental and health problems.

If projections are correct, these new urban dwellers will require the world’s existing cities to expand six-fold to accommodate triple the residents, Richard Florida wrote in The Atlantic. Plus, the world will need 500 new “megacities” of 10 million or more, he wrote.

Unit 2, Population and Migration: Migration

This article and map explain where people of different ages and family sizes move to and from. And why they move there, whether it be a job, college, or even family matters.

This ties into unit 2 by showing where people migrate to. Which explains why people move there. Overall this is a very big concept of unit 2.

This map is a good representation of the migration of Americans in  the U.S.

China's generation gap

China's generation gap | Mrs. Welle's AP Human Geography | Scoop.it

"Chinese parents bemoan the laziness and greed of their children, but this generation of young people has had enough.  Parents who spent their own twenties labouring on remote farms have children who measure their world in malls, iPhones, and casual dates."

China rapid economic ascent has been astounding, but it has led to some interesting cultural dynamics as parents and children are literally from different worlds.
