Description

The world's growing economy is placing an enormous demand on the planet's ecological resources. In this film, Dr. Mathis Wackernagel introduces the Ecological Footprint, a resource accounting tool that measures human demand on the Earth. Currently, humanity's demand on resources exceeds what Earth can regenerate. Wackernagel explores the implications of these ecological deficits, and provides examples of how governments, communities and businesses are using the Footprint to help improve their ecological performance.
