Tearchers guide on the principles of sustainable development and how to teach them. The past century has brought massive changes to planet earth. Those born at the beginning of the twenty first century have inherited a world that is vastly different from those of their grandparents. As of November 2008, the human population has soared to over 6.7 billion people, an incredible number given that the world population only first reached 3 billion in 1961. The dramatic increase in population growth has been accompanied by a rapid rise in the rate of consumption of the worlds resources, made possible by new technologies and wealth, particularly in developed countries.
