What is Earth Overshoot Day?

Earth Overshoot Day marks the day on which humanity has used up all natural resources that the earth can regenerate in one year. Consequently, we run into ecological debt: a deficit which increases from year to year and with each Earth Overshoot Day. We would need 1.6 earths to cover our current rate of resource consumption.

In 2020, COVID-19 has moved the date backwards again, as reduced human activity means we use less resources and emit less carbon dioxide. This demonstrates that with our action, we can #movethedate.
