Ecological Footprint for One Planet

Apr 18, 2009 Published under Economics, Environment, Global, Science and Technology

One of the best efforts I have seen at explaining the way we are consuming and living beyond sustainability in this world comes from The Global Footprint Network.  At the Skoll World Forum a couple weeks ago, Mathis Wackernagel handed me a business-card sized brochure that very poignantly and clearly explains how consumption in the developed and oil-producing world is depleting our globe in measurably dangerous ways.  You should visit the page tracking human development growth and related ecological footprint growth.  Their solution, not easy to implement but succintly showing the only way forward, is to aim for sustainable human development.


You can take a quiz to establish and track your own human footprint.
