There are eight billion of us humans.
All breathing, eating, fidgeting and thinking deep thoughts.
It's an unimaginably large number. Or is it?
Say hello to the mega human: all the people in the world smooshed into one spectacular giant. Even though it's not the smartest of creatures, the mega human is slowly beginning to understand the problems it has created for Planet Earth's future . . . and how it might be able to fix them.
Making use of brain-bending stats and smoosh theory, The Biggest Footprint is a journey of self-discovery suitable for anyone and everyone identifying as human.
