The Ecological Footprint is a monitor of human demand on ecosystems.
It shows that humanity is already using nearly 50% more natural resources than the Earth can replenish.
Under a "business-as-usual" scenario, by 2050 people are predicted to be using twice as many natural resources than the Earth can replenish.
If this happens, large-scale ecosystem collapse becomes increasingly likely, as does dangerous climate change
To prevent this, we need to find ways to maintain a high standard of living while using far fewer natural resources – getting our footprint down to One Planet Living
