Earth Overshoot is dedicated to redefining the narrative that our environmental catastrophes are exclusively linked to managing the consumption of our resources. We act as an agent of change for our fellow environmental organizations, our governments and the global community-at-large to recognize that getting people to reduce their consumption is far more difficult and ultimately less effective in achieving true environmental sustainability than reducing the number of future consumers.
How do we do this?
* We work with like-minded organizations to generate the public and political will to make ecological limits the center of all decision-making.
* We serve as a conduit between the public and local, state and federal representatives to drive policies that recognize population’s impact on our planet’s sustainability.
