Reduced driving alone due to coronavirus-induced lockdowns around the world moved the date of Earth Overshoot Day. Can we build on this momentum – embracing more walking and biking, and using public transportation when safely available – to ensure that reduced driving is here to stay by design and not just a temporary event that was thrust upon us?

We are counting all the steps taken to #MoveTheDate. More steps mean more impact.
