Bits of Science – Hello World!
– The Birth of the World's Seven
Bits of Science.org is an online media platform offering a daily source of news in the fields of science, sustainability, technology and the environment. Collaborating with various media sources, Bits of Science is a small but committed international group of researchers and science writers.
For their article about the world’s seven billionth inhabitant, Bits of Science asked us to design an infographic to illustrate the growth of the world’s population and the speculated birth place of the seven billionth inhabitant. The infographic shows the dramatic growth in population in the past four decades as well as the projected population in the coming four decades according to the United Nations. Further it speculates as to where the seven billionth inhabitant might be born, namely the most densely populated neighborhood in the world, the Dharavi Slum in Mumbai.
