Starting July 29th, all inhabitants of Earth live on a loan.
This day marks humanity has consumed all the resources that Earth can provide in a year in a sustainable way. That means that everything that humanity consumes by December 31, 2019 exceeds the real limits of what the Earth is capable of giving us (we would need 1.75 Earths to be sustainable, but we only have one).
If you look at the graphic, you will see that since 1970, where the excess date was December 29, we have been depleting Earth's resources in an increasingly way. It is urgent to discuss this reality and demand the political and business powers that promote and sustain this system of consumption and extractivism, that the issue is addressed. We need our quality of life is truly improved without destroying the Earth, in which we all live.
If everyone committed to #MoveTheDate by 5 days each year, we could get out of the global ecological deficit before 2050.
