Ecological Footprinting - 0.1 credits
Registration is now closed (this event already took place).
Presenter: Mathis Wackernagel, PhD
The session will provide an introduction to the Ecological Footprint is a science-based tool that tracks both the planet's available ecological resources and human demand on those resources. By measuring the amount of nature we have versus the amount we use, the Footprint 1) reveals Earth's ecological limits; 2) communicates the risk of boundless resource consumption; and 3) facilitates the sustainable management and preservation of Earth's natural resources for the well-being of humankind. Over the past several years it has emerged as a leading sustainability indicator.
