SAP, United Nations Population Fund and the Churchill Club Present Innovating for a World of 7 Billion Executive Roundtable
SAP, together with The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the Churchill Club, today announced it will host a breakfast and virtual event on October 24, 2011, entitled Innovating for a World of 7 Billion.
The world’s population is slated to top seven billion people on October 31, 2011. This humanitarian milestone represents both an achievement and a challenge, and impacts everyone on the planet. A world of seven billion and beyond has implications for sustainability, urbanization, access to health services and youth empowerment. Companies, governments and non-profits of every size have a role to play to create a healthy and sustainable world for all.
As the United Nations agency responsible for marking this milestone, the UNFPA is leading a global initiative—7 Billion Actions—to raise awareness of the opportunities and challenges of a world of seven billion people and beyond. Dr. Babatunde Osotimehin, Executive Director of UNFPA, and Dr. Vishal Sikka, Executive Board Member, SAP, will present the global perspective on the biggest challenges facing a world of seven billion, and engage leading thinkers from Silicon Valley on how to transform them into opportunities.
