This year’s theme is Seven Billion Dreams. One Planet. Consume with Care.
Many of the Earth’s ecosystems are nearing critical tipping points of depletion or irreversible change, pushed by high population growth and economic development. By 2050, if current consumption and production patterns remain the same and with a rising population expected to reach 9.6 billion, we will need three planets to sustain our ways of living and consumption.
Listen to Abbie Barnes, a young conservation filmmaker, share why this day is important to her and other young people like her.
