Human demands on nature have been steadily rising since the 1900’s. In 2020,for the first time ever, we reduced our annual demand by almost 10%. Now imagine what we can achieve if we make this a priority. Today, Humanity’s Ecological Footprint is much higher than the Earth can renew. Earth Overshoot Day is an annual observance of the date when our demand on nature surpasses our planet’s capacity to provide.

By July 29, 2019, humanity’s demand for nature will exceed what Earth’s ecosystems can replenish during the entire year. It is Earth Overshoot Day and the 2019 date is the earliest ever. Since overuse is only possible for a limited duration in time, human demand on nature will be brought in balance with what Earth can provide – the question is whether this happens by design or disaster.The good news is that the current trend can be reversed.
