A few quick facts..

Each person’s environmental footprint has grown (2006 data) to a mean of 2.6 global hectares (gha) per person, yet the total biological capacity of the planet would allow only about 1.8 gha per person (www.footprintnetwork.org).

The United Nations’ Global Environment Outlook-4 report reveals a scale of unprecedented ecological damage, with close to 2 billion likely to suffer absolute water scarcity by 2025.

The Living Planet Report of WWF calculates that humankind will need 200% of the planet’s total biocapacity (forestry, fisheries, croplands) by 2050.

In december this year, we’ll reach a population of 7 billion.

If we ever needed a new path, it’s now..
