Have you heard of Earth Overshoot Day?
Earth Overshoot Day marks the date each year when the rate of global resource consumption exceeds what Earth can regenerate in that year. The built environment accounts for a staggering 50% of the world's extracted materials and nearly 40% of greenhouse gas emissions annually. As architects and designers, you hold tremendous power to shape the built environment in a way that respects and conserves our precious resources.
