The Race to 9 Billion Podcast

Did you know that in 35 years the world population is projected to grow by 35 percent? At this rate, there will be more than 9 billion people on planet Earth by 2050.
Mega trends like this are redefining our economy and our society with big implications for environmental science and technology. The
 Race to 9 Billion, now in its second season with host John Mandyck, Chief Sustainability Officer, United Technologies, explores sustainability in a rapidly growing and urbanizing world and the innovations that will help shape tomorrow.


"At UTC, we often see the world through the lens of the technologies we develop for aviation, buildings and food -- and how each will fill a valuable need for our sustainable future," said Mandyck. "On The Race to 9 Billion, we talk to the people who are developing and using some remarkable strategies and technologies that can lead us to a more sustainable environmental future, even in a more crowded world."
