Film is uniquely powerful in bringing issues to life and putting a human face to the challenges facing the world – and their solutions. “1 of 7 Billion” is a global short film competition, organized by the 7 Billion Actions initiative and the Foundation 10.12.48.  It is designed to inspire people everywhere to use their talents to explore one of the seven key issues targeted by 7 Billion Actions:

•    Empowerment and progress of women and girls
•    Young people

•    Healthy environmental and healthy people
•    Aging
•    Urbanization-planning for growth.
