Our Ecological Footprint
Reducing Human Impact on the Earth
Our Ecological Footprint presents an internationally-acclaimed tool for measuring and visualizing the resources required to sustain our households, communities, regions and nations, converting the seemingly complex concepts of carrying capacity, resource-use, waste-disposal and the like into a graphic form that everyone can grasp and use. An excellent handbook for community activists, planners, teachers, students and policy makers.
Our Ecological Footprint has been made available through New Catalyst Books. New Catalyst Books is an imprint of New Society Publishers, aimed at providing readers with access to a wider range of books dealing with sustainability issues by bringing books back into print that have enduring value in the field.
Mathis Wackernagel is president of the Global Footprint Network and co-creator of the Ecological Footprint. He has worked on sustainability issues for government agencies, NGOs and businesses on all continents.
