    - Overpopulation:
    We would like to focus on the highest population growth in the world to address this issue. The highest population growth occurs in under-developed countries, especially Africa. We think that we should provide women in underdeveloped countries family planning and support to become empowered in making decisions about the size of their families. 

    - Per capita consumption: 
    Social media influencers have a large influence over the young people of today… you-tubers, Instagram, etc. … we think that it would be effective to do giveaways and other incentives for sustainable actions, attending events, collecting trash, and incorporating minimalistic lifestyles for the followers of these influencers.
