Global Footprint Network is unveiling something new!

new solutions platform we’ve been developing with the support of our Czech partner Mapotic is now available to be explored and populated! Available here:

Effective solutions to #MoveTheDate of Earth Overshoot Day already exist in abundance. We believe it is possible to accelerate their implementation in the real world. How? By sharing knowledge of what works and bringing people together.

The process is simple:

1.    Join the community. If you fill in your location on your Mapotic profile (as general or specific as you feel comfortable with), you will be visible on the map so you can easily connect with other Date Movers.
2.    Post your favorite real solutions (3! 5! 12! More!) to live in balance with our planet – maybe you have personally implemented them, or you have been inspired by them.
3.    Check out who else has joined and what they’ve been sharing.
4.    Invite friends! The larger the online community, the more knowledge available and the more opportunities for collaborative projects in the real world.
5.    Come back often to see what’s new and who’s joined!

Last but not least, email us with any question, request, or feedback you may want to share. We would love to hear from you.

We can’t wait to see you there!

Wondering how you can help #MoveTheDate of Earth Overshoot Day towards one-planet living?

You’re in the right place. Since we launched the Earth Overshoot Day campaign in 2006, we’ve been calculating the date of Earth Overshoot Day each year for every year, going back to the early 1970s when the world first fell in ecological deficit. Over time, we’ve expanded this campaign to include Steps to #MoveTheDate so that anyone may feel empowered to take action in their own life. Because if we #MoveTheDate five days out every year, we’d be under one planet before 2050. More than ever we understand that #MoveTheDate can’t stop at Earth Overshoot Day and must live throughout the year. The movement keeps growing. There’s no time to lose. We need you. We depend on you. Please consider supporting our work for as little as $5. One hundred dollars helps us generate 2 million media impressions during Earth Overshoot Day. Thank you!
