Overdevelopment, Overpopulation, Overshoot: Are we in trouble? Part 1 | S01 E01 on EarthxTV
Host: Gary Wockner
Guest: Tom Butler
Introducing ecological overshoot, why it’s important, and beginning the show’s thoughtful exploration of what can be (and is already being) done to confront many of the greatest challenges of our time.
#OvercomingOvershoot takes a deep look at the myriad symptoms of ecological overshoot by way of thoughtful conversations with experts and visionaries exploring not only what’s going wrong but also what solution pathways are available to overcome overshoot. Moderated by eco-rockstar, Gary Wockner, this show will serve as an essential hub to connect people from around the world on this most pressing concern.
Our population has expanded explosively over the past few centuries, now seven times greater than it was prior to the Industrial Revolution. As it continues to grow, so does the concern of scholars and activists for the future of our children. Join us as we take a holistic view on this issue from all angles in a collective effort to protect life as we know it on Earth.
Our Planet. From Every Side.
