A country’s overshoot day is the date on which Earth Overshoot Day would fall if all of humanity consumed like the people in this country. Shockingly, last year for us as a global society Earth Overshoot Day fell on July 29th!

This begs the question whether we really have learned something from the past 2 years? 

Luckily the past does not necessarily determine our future. Our current choices do! 

Through wise, forward-looking decisions, we can turn around natural resource consumption trends while improving the quality of life for all people.

While our planet is finite, human possibilities are not. The transformation to a sustainable, carbon-neutral world will succeed if we apply humanity’s greatest strengths: foresight, innovation, and care for each other. The good news is that this transformation is not only technologically possible, it is also economically beneficial and our best chance for a prosperous future.

We all have a role to play, no matter how small our actions may seem.
