Towards 9 Billion Towards 9 Billion provides a vision for a sustainable and equitable future. We believe that some simple yet radical changes to the purpose and processes of modern international capitalism could produce innately sustainable outcomes. The human population is set to grow to more than 9 billion people by 2050. What sort of world do we want them to arrive into? One of scarce resources and extreme competition for the basic elements of survival, or one in which they are able to build stable and meaningful lives for themselves and their children? Rather than seeing a growing population as a fundamental threat, might we rather see it as a global opportunity of epic proportions? 10
