Move The Date - Choosing our future by design, not disaster

to
Earth Overshoot Day is the day when humanity’s demand for ecological resources and services in a given year exceeds what Earth can regenerate in that period. Choosing our future by design, not disaster is the centrepiece of this year’s global #MoveTheDate conversation and launches Earth Overshoot Day 2020.
 
The virtual event brings together leading figures from business, politics, sustainability and academia from across the globe. Journalist, presenter and broadcaster Steph McGovern will  
chair discussions covering the importance of business, partnership and leadership in creating inclusive, sustainable, economic prosperity.
 
The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) and California based Global Footprint Network are teaming up with The University of Glasgow and a panel of international guests to put a focus on real opportunities for practical action.
