Sustainability Dialogue: Overshoot will end, by design or disaster. Which one will we choose?

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. In 2021, it fell on July 29. Eventually, overshoot will come to an end. What we can choose is whether it will end by design or disaster. Many design options exist.

Invitation: Overshoot - by design or disaster?

Join our two speakers, Dr. Mathis Wackernagel (President of Global Footprint Network) and Prof. Dr. Aya Kachi (Professor for International Political Economy and Energy Policy, University of Basel ) in a conversation about their journeys, their personal motivation to dedicate their professional lives to this topic, and what they have learnt from their successes and failures.

The event is organized by the Research Network Sustainable Future and the Sustainability Office at the University of Basel.
