You!

We saved the most powerful solution to combat overshoot for the end.

100 Days of Possibility Final Solution

We saved the most powerful solution to combat overshoot for the end: you!

What is the solution?

Embrace possibilities that help end overshoot: for yourself, your family, your community, your city, your company, your planet. And let the world know that you’re not waiting!

How does it #MoveTheDate?

YOU have the power to implement, insist upon, and champion solutions that allow all of us to thrive within the means of our one, beautiful planet.

How is it scalable?

We’ve highlighted solutions every day during the 100 Days of Possibility, but these are just the beginning. Possibilities are endless with human ingenuity.

We’re Not Waiting: A Manifesto

Massive forest fires, species extinction, refugee crises, extreme weather events, and the pandemic are not discrete calamities impacting the world at random. They are all just the latest symptoms of the same disease: overshoot. Solutions that allow all of us to thrive within the means of our one, beautiful planet already exist.

I have the power to shape the future, with or without our government leaders.

Starting November 1st, governments from all over the world are gathering in Glasgow, Scotland for COP 26. At this conference, international leaders will make decisions that impact how quickly humanity progresses towards a sustainable future. But they aren’t the only ones who can create change, and what they decree can’t stop me from taking action.

There’s no need to wait.

Launched on July 29, 2021, this years’ Earth Overshoot Day, 100 Days of Possibility has highlighted potent and effective solutions that already exist; solutions that are already being adopted one city, one country, one company, one entity, one individual at a time.

I have the power to implement, insist upon, and champion solutions that allow all of us to thrive within the means of our one, beautiful planet.

I have the power to share these solutions with my community. As a student or teacher, employee or employer, business owner or customer, activist, civil servant, or faith leader, I can encourage those around me to let their imaginations soar, embrace possibilities, and champion innovation.

So, I say: To world and national leaders, influencers, decision makers in the public sphere or in business, local actors, community organizers and members, join me and let the world know you are not waiting to prepare yourself for the predictable future. Together, and loudly, we:

  • Know there is no need to wait on others to solve this crisis.
  • Acknowledge there is no single or best solution for all, but that there are uncountable possibilities to build the world we want.
  • Use our energy, ingenuity, and spheres of influence to build a world where we can thrive within the means of our planet.
