According to data from the Global Footprint Network, the global organization and partner of WWF that analyzes the evolution of the Ecological Footprint. Humanity has exhausted its annual ecological budget in less than 8 months. Today is the day that the Earth is overcapacity, and that marks the point at which our ecological footprint exceeds the planet capacity to regenerate what we consumed. This date, which acts as an indicator of the rate at which we are “eating the planet ‘, ever occurs earlier. In 2000 the day was October 1, and this year we are already in August 19.

The current consumption levels have skyrocketed and are now completely out of sustainable limits and now we need a planet and a half to supply the consumption needs of humanity. If we maintain this trend, we will need at least 3 planets to meet our demand in 2050.

“If we each take responsibility in shifting our own behavior, we can trigger the type of change that is necessary to achieve sustainability for our race or this planet. We change our planet, our environment, our humanity every day, every year, every decade, and every millennia.” Yehuda Berg.

As pointed out by Marco Lambertini, Director General of WWF International, “nature is the basis of our welfare and prosperity, but we are abusing the Earth’s limited resources.” And he added: “If we want to build a future for our children, we must preserve the natural capital that we have, managing the resources of the planet in a sustainable manner.”

Sustainability, ensuring the future of life on Earth, is an infinite game, the endless expression of generosity on behalf of all. Paul Hawken.

Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere but we need responsibility!
