IF WE ALL LIVED AT THE POPULATION DENSITY OF MANHATTAN...

What If We Rethought the Human Footprint 1 of 3 nights at light

HOW MUCH SPACE WOULD 8 BILLION PEOPLE TAKE UP?

Rethinking the Human Footprint Population Density of Manhattan - New Mexico, Paraguay, Poland, Congo, Oman, Vietnam

WE COULD ALL FIT INTO THE STATE OF NEW MEXICO.... OR THE COUNTRY OF PARAGUAY, POLAND, THE REPUBLIC OF CONGO, OMAN, OR VIETNAM.

IS THIS A QUESTION OF ONLY POPULATION, OR ALSO LAND-USE AND RESOURCE CONSUMPTION? CAN WE IMAGINE REARRANGING THE LIGHTS?

What If We Rethought the Human Footprint 3 of 3 - reimagine the lights

CAN WE ENVISION A MAP THAT SHOWS A FUTURE THAT BALANCES OUR NEEDS WITH THE NEEDS OF THE PLANET?
