The World Population Day by Governing Council of UN Devel Programme for Waste Management.
WPD started in 1989 to raise Waste Management Awareness in Times Square.
The World Population foundation was built to raise awareness of certain Human Rights principles affecting our population. Some of those principles include waste management, Environmental protection, and All-around Population sources. Additionally, the WPD event also raised awareness towards environmental responsibility and world population issues. Conversely, we at Population Source share this same passion.
World Population Day is celebrated July 11th
Population Source spoke to some of the attendees who shared an environmental passion. Most of the people at the Square experienced water tanks, sustainable floors. In addition, there were motivational speakers and informative stations. One of the participants, Stephan D. notes:
By resolution 45/216 of December 1990, the United Nations General Assembly decided to continue observing World Population Day to enhance awareness of population issues, including their relations to the environment and development.
We as a population, have the right to choose when and how often to embrace parenthood — if this is the choice made. Moreover, every individual has the human right to determine the choices of his or her future in this fundamental way.
Indeed, the WDP event drew major interest in Times Square. Also, out of 300k people who cross Times Square, a majority got to see a great science event.
