Use Global Footprint Network’s open data platform and other information available on this website to explore, grab, and use relevant data in order to come up with your best estimate for Earth Overshoot Day 2017, the date when we have used all the renewable natural resources that the planet can replenish this year.

We also created these guidelines to turn this activity into a full lesson for Grades 6-8.
