Slovenia already at Earth Overshoot Day


Toma┼ż Gorenc of the Slovenian NGO said this year Slovenia arrived at Earth Overshoot Day, previously known as Ecological Debt Day, only a day earlier than last year.

Earth Overshoot Day is a date calculated to show when humanity consumes natural resources beyond the Earth's capacity to regenerate them that year.

Gorenc believes it will be interesting to see how the coronavirus pandemic and the measures to contain it globally impact the global Earth Overshoot Day.

NGO Global Footprint Network is expected to announced on 5 June when the world will be able to consume only as much natural resources a year as the Earth can regenerate.
