How many Earths would we need if everyone in the world lived the average lifestyle in your country?
We are using 1.7 Earths.
We use more ecological resources and services than nature can regenerate through overfishing, overharvesting forests, and emitting more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than ecosystems can absorb. Earth Overshoot Day marks the date when we (all of humanity) have used more from nature than our planet can renew in the entire year. In 2018, it has fallen on August 1.
Thriving lives within the means of our planet are not out of reach. Plenty of solutions exist in four major areas for improving sustainability: food, cities, population, and energy: how will you #MoveTheDate?
