Or click to download an Excel version of the My Ecological Footprint worksheet from the Transition Streets 2020 Handbook


The Earth-Global Hectares concept used in the Excel worksheet can be a bit technical – but one idea is easy to see – When in the calendar year did you use up your share of the Earth?

This date is the Earth Overshoot Day  ( for 2019 this was July 29th – that is when we used up one Earth of bio-capacity – for the rest of the year we were eating our future )

This is can be worked out here –  Your Ecological Footprint – and for more information you can explore this web site – Global Footprint Network
