It’s time to talk about Earth’s unsustainable population growth


Population. Consumption. A balance of both is critical to a planet marked by better human health, economic prosperity and a flourishing natural world.

Earth Overshoot recognizes that duality and works not only to bring our human numbers back into balance with nature but also to draw attention to the overconsumption of our planet's limited resources. We aspire to be champions for a sustainable, safer, less crowded and more just world. 

How do you educate someone who has wrapped part of their identity around scoffing at environmental concerns? You look for "softer targets" closer to home. Earth Overshoot volunteer Amy Tschudin explains.

If humanity ignores the true source of the manatee’s plight - our unsustainable growth in human numbers and consumption -- with band-aid solutions and "rescue" attempts, we will only delay the inevitable and ultimately drive them and many other creatures to extinction.

Earth Overshoot works to make sustainability central to all personal and public decision-making through targeted education and advocacy in order to achieve a world characterized by human well-being and flourishing biodiversity.
