If the World was 100 People

This is a copy of a post I made on the SAD Blog.
An email went round the world, based on Donella Meadows idea, helping us understand the huge numbers of people in the world in terms of a Village of 100 People.

Its been going round the world since 1990... Jane used it in her GCSE presentation... Wendy got a copy of it from a friend... I've used it at club... and we talked about it on Tuesday... if you want to know more or want to pass it on, check out the following sites.

100 People: A World Portrait is a video with some American 4th Graders (based on the original 1990 data)

Miniature Earth is a 2001 updated video

The Geography Site has a 2005 updated list...

...and if we can't find an updated video...let's make one!
