(Earth Overshoot Day / Footprint Calculator)



  • [message]
    • The Global Footprint Network is international nonprofit organization founded in 2003 to enable a sustainable future where all people have the opportunity to thrive within the means of one planet [ www.footprintnetwork.org ]What does the word “footprint” mean? It directly meant the imprint you’ll leave on the planet. The concept of the Ecological Footprint was developed by University of British Columbia Professor William Rees and Global Footprint Network co-founder Mathis Wackernagel * GFN's mission is to help end ecological overshoot by making ecological limits central to decision-making The vision is that all people live well, within the means of nature Global Footprint Network has been internationally recognized for success - 2015 - International Association for Impact Assessment's Global Environment Award, 2015 - RECYCLAPOLIS National Sustainability Award, 2014 - ISSP Sustainability Hall of Fame Inductees Susan Burns and Mathis Wackernagel, 2013 - Prix Nature Swisscanto and more Footprint Calculator is also available here * Bad News for 2017 - Mankind busted Earth's annual budget on August 2 * What is this? Earth Overshoot Day marks the date when humanity has exhausted nature’s budget for the year. For the rest of the year, we are maintaining our ecological deficit by drawing down local resource stocks and accumulating carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. We are operating in overshoot. Really bad news :(
