Oct. 27, 2011 - PRLog -- WASHINGTON, Oct. 27, 2011 – In partnership with Carousel30 (http://www.Carousel30.com), The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) (http://www.unfpa.org/public/) launches its 7 Billion & Me website (http://www.7billionandme.org) today. The world’s population will top seven billion people on October, 31 2011. To mark this historic, global event, the UNFPA launched a global movement called 7 Billion Actions (http://www.7billionactions.org/) to inspire change by highlighting positive actions individuals and organizations can take that will make a difference around the world.

The 7 Billion & Me website is an important piece of the global movement campaign. It illustrates how a population of 7 billion relates to one person based on several factors such as birth date, birth location and current hometown. With this information, the website displays world statistics calculated specifically for him or her. It provides facts and figures such as how many people were born before you globally or how many people were born in your hometown after you, among other interesting statistics. The site also features a real time population clock.  

Participants of the campaign can also submit a picture and life story and share how making a difference is important to them both locally and globally.

Carousel30 worked with UNFPA to create the 7 Billion & Me website including its design and development. This data, combined with infographics designed by Carousel30, form a unique experience for every user of the site. Every person is able to see world statistics calculated specifically for him or her.

About the 7 Billion Actions Campaign
As the United Nations agency responsible for marking this milestone, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) is leading an innovative global campaign called 7 Billion Actions to build awareness around the opportunities and challenges of a world of seven billion people. UNFPA has enlisted a wide group of corporations, organizations and individuals to deliver this unique initiative, using online, mobile and offline actions to tell the story of the people behind the number. Seven Billion Actions aims to achieve two key objectives including building global awareness around the opportunities and challenges associated with a world of seven billion people and inspiring governments, NGOs, private sector, media, academia and individuals to take actions that will have a socially positive impact. For information, visit http://www.7billionandme.org.

UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, is an international development agency that promotes the right of every woman, man and child to enjoy a life of health and equal opportunity. UNFPA supports countries in using population data for policies and programmes to reduce poverty and to ensure that every pregnancy is wanted, every birth is safe, every young person is free of HIV, and every girl and woman is treated with dignity and respect.
