The Earth Overshoot Day 2019 campaign is gaining momentum fast!

We’re excited to announce that both US and EU petitions have reached the 30 000-signature mark in just one week. Let’s ramp up the momentum and shoot for 150 000 by July 1st!

We’re asking all US or EU citizen to please sign the petition to demand that their leaders manage ecological resources responsibly, as well as share the petition widely on their social networks.

  • In the EU, we want to increase pressure on decision makers. Why now? The recent elections saw a surge of green votes and of voters’ concerns about environmental issues in general.
  • In the US, we want to build up visibility of environmental issues. Why now? Democratic candidates are positioning themselves and adjusting their political platforms during the early phase of the primaries campaign.

Let’s get our voices heard and see how much traction we can generate in the public debate by July 29, Earth Overshoot Day 2019.

Have you already signed the petition and done your part to tell everyone you know about it? We have more steps to #MoveTheDate in store for you. Keep up the great work and have fun with it!

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!
