如果世界缩小成只有一百个人的村庄,人们的生活会是怎样?


HOW many people are there in the world? Around 6.465 billion (十亿).

How many people are there in China? About 1.3 billion.


Last Wednesday the United Nations gave its latest report on problems of the world's growing population.

Many people around the world don't have enough money or food. And in some countries, women lack (缺乏) rights and opportunities (机会).

Does big population mean trouble (麻烦) for schools?

"Of course," says 15-year-old girl Pan Shu of Nanjing. "Our exams become more and more difficult because more and more people have to take them!"

To Zhou Yi, a 14-year-old boy from Anhui, big population means big classes.

"There are 53 students in our class. In some classes, some students even have to sit in the hallway! " says Zhou. "If there were fewer students, everyone would get more care from the teacher."

If the world were a village of 100...

ABOUT 6 billion people live on our planet (星球). What are their lives like? You might not be able to know for sure. But if the world were a village of 100 people, it would look like this:
