What would our world look like if each country would be big enough to supply their citizens consumption demand per capita? This calendar aims to provide a new perspective on the globally important issue of disproportionate resource consumption. 

Inspired by the data from the Global Foodprint Network for the World Overshoot Day we designed a world map that visualizes the size of each country based on the consumption demand per capita (Ecological Footprint) vs. the available resources per country (Biocapacity). Countries with populations that consume more resources than available appear larger than their actual size (and vice versa).

The country-specific markers highlight on which date the Earth Overshoot Day would fall, if we all lived like the people in the corresponding country. The sooner a country reaches this Overshoot Day, the more disproportional is its resource consumption.
