  The world’s population is slated to top seven billion people on October 31, 2011. This humanitarian milestone represents both an achievement and a challenge, and impacts everyone on the planet. A world of seven billion and beyond has implications for sustainability, urbanization, access to health services and youth empowerment. Companies, governments and non-profits of every size have a role to play to create a healthy and sustainable world for all.

As the United Nations agency responsible for marking this milestone, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) is leading a global initiative—7 Billion Actions—to raise awareness of the opportunities and challenges of a world of seven billion people and beyond. Dr. Babatunde Osotimehin, Executive Director of UNFPA, will present the global perspective on the biggest challenges facing a world of seven billion, and engage leading thinkers from Silicon Valley on how to transform them into opportunities.

Join us October 24, International UN Day, and the official kick-off of the 7-Day Countdown to 7 Billion, for a high-level conversation about “Innovating for a World of 7 Billion.“
