How ecological overshoot is shifting economic rules

21 November 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Overshoot is humanity’s second largest risk in the 21st century. This event will explore the options that we have once we accept our context.

Earth Overshoot Day marks the date when humanity has exhausted nature’s budget for the year. In 2022, Earth Overshoot Day fell on Thursday 28 July.

Human demand on nature can be tracked. Even conservative estimates show that it has exceeded what the biosphere can renew. If this is so, what are the implications? Who are the winners and the losers? What might be the most effective strategies, for businesses, cities, or entire countries? Are these strategies worth their effort? These are the questions the event will explore.
