London has an estimated population as of 1 January 2005 of 7.5 million and a metropolitan area population of between 12 and 14 million. London's population includes an extremely diverse range of peoples, cultures, and religions, making it one of the most cosmopolitan, vibrant and energetic cities in the world, with over 300 languages spoken there.
Today, "London" usually refers to the region of London which covers thirty-two London Boroughs and the City of London.
The region of London shares borders with South East England and the East of England. Because of high degrees of interdependence it is arguable that neither London nor its neighbouring regions can approach sustainability in isolation.
