Earth Overshoot Day 2018
With Earth Overshoot Day 2018 falling on August 1, the earliest date ever, we decided to do something big. We ran an “ad” about Earth Overshoot Day on two screens in New York City’s Times Square for two weeks, two times per hour! You can watch the ad featuring stunning cinematography by Louie Schwartzberg below.
We also broadcasted a live video stream with partners around the world to showcase the amazing momentum to #MoveTheDate of Overshoot Day. Our lineup included: Christiana Figueres, Convener of Mission 2020; former Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) 2010-2016; Terry A’Hearn, CEO of the Scottish Environment Protection Agency; Nicolas Hulot, Former Minister of Ecological Transition, France; David Levine, Co-founder and President, American Sustainable Business Council; Carter Roberts, President and CEO, World Wildlife Fund US; Kathleen Rogers, President, Earth Day Network; cinematographer Louie Schwartzberg, and many more!
