EARTH OVERSHOOT DAY
“Between the pandemic, wilder weather patterns, and the resurgence or intensification of wars on several continents leading to massive food insecurity, the importance of fostering one’s resource security to support one’s economic prosperity is becoming ever more critical for cities, countries, and business entities.” – Mathis Wackernagel. President of Global Footprint Network
Earth Overshoot Day marks the date when humanity’s demand for ecological resources and services in a given year exceeds what Earth can regenerate in that year. We maintain this deficit by liquidating stocks of ecological resources and accumulating waste, primarily carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. To determine the date of Earth Overshoot Day for each year, Global Footprint Network calculates the number of days of that year that Earth’s biocapacity suffices to provide for humanity’s Ecological Footprint. The remainder of the year corresponds to global overshoot. Earth Overshoot Day is computed by dividing the planet’s biocapacity (the amount of ecological resources Earth is able to generate that year), by humanity’s Ecological Footprint (humanity’s demand for that year), and multiplying by 365, the number of days in a year:
(Earth’s Biocapacity / Humanity’s Ecological Footprint) x 365 = Earth Overshoot Day
Earth Overshoot Day 2022 was on July 28, one day earlier than 2021, from that day everything is a discount.
It reminds us that the persistence of the overdraft, now over half a century, has led to a huge decline in biodiversity, excess greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, and increased competition for food and energy. These symptoms are increasingly manifested through excessive heat waves, wildfires, droughts and floods.
In the face of a foreseeable future of more climate change and limited resources, resource security is becoming an essential parameter of lasting prosperity. This is valid for countries, cities or companies. There is no advantage in waiting for international agreements. Rather, it is in every city, company or country’s interest to step up and protect their own ability to operate in the future. In fact, a new generation of companies focused on the circular economy have already recognized this: They operate while reducing overdraft. The expansion of these types of companies means that the global overdraft decreases.
We are entering a ‘storm’ of climate change and biological resource constraints. The earlier companies, cities, and countries plan ahead and prepare themselves for the predictable future, the better their chance of thriving. There is immense power of possibility in the many existing solutions that are ready to be deployed at scale. With them, we can make ourselves more resilient and #MoveTheDate of Earth Overshoot Day.
CATEGORY F. Students from 18 to 25 years old. Unpublished posters
TECNOLOGÍA Y SALUD MENTAL
Technology has been designed to be at the service of people by providing effective solutions on a daily basis. Today, not being up-to-date reduces the chances of interaction. Children grow up with more tech skills than their grandparents and the current education faces all these challenges considering that students will make full use of the capabilities that technology provides for their education. During the pandemic the world has depended on it. We have been forced to redefine everything: education, health, basic needs, finances and work. We have got many things in favor thanks to technology, but it has also affected other aspects of our lives that are not visible to everyone. Lack of attention span and information retention; affective bonds broken; low self-esteem generated by idealizing realities of other in social media has generated serious disorders such as depression and anxiety. Mental health is one of the most affected ones. Professional advice invites us to stay away from the excessive use of devices and limit the hours so that we could enhance our effectiveness and reconnect with our environment. In a reality where smartphones seem to dictate the pace of an incomplete life, this “epidemic of anxiety disorders in the 21st century” only generates lives of stress, psychological and body dysmorphic disorders. And there is no app that can provide you with the ideal filter to hide what you have inside.
