World Population Day is on July 11 every year. This day is meant to bring attention to the fact that the world’s population is growing and that it is very important to do something to slow down population growth in every part of the world. Measures must be taken to stop the ever-growing human population, because the Earth’s natural and man-made resources are limited and can’t support such a high population density. The goal of this day is to make more people aware of how important population issues are all over the world. The campaign is happening today. This day is also celebrated to bring attention to important social issues like child marriage, gender equality, human rights, and the importance of family planning, all of which are urgent concerns given the way the world is right now.
This year’s theme for World Population Day is “A world of 8 billion: Towards a resilient future for all.” The theme for World Population Day in 2022 will be “Harnessing opportunities and protecting rights and choices for everyone.” The topic was chosen after the number of people in the area was thought about. It is thought that there are 7.96 billion people on the planet right now, and it is expected that by 2030, there will be over 8.5 billion more.
The main point is that there are about 8 billion people on Earth right now, but not all of them have the same rights and social opportunities. Most of the time, this is because there are less resources and more people to take care of. Many people who are economically or socially disadvantaged are subject to harassment, discrimination, and even acts of violence because of their sexual orientation, gender, ethnicity, class, religion, disability, or country of origin. This is because there are fewer resources and an uneven distribution of income. This is because people don’t get the same amount of money.
Since the world’s population is growing faster than ever, scientists are paying more attention to the problem of too much population growth than ever before. Inequality between men and women and violations of human rights are becoming more and more of a problem in emerging nations.
