20 Conclusion: Are we in balance?  There are only global hectares available per person on a renewable basis.  This means we are overshooting the Earth's biological capacity by nearly 50%. To sustain present levels of consumption, we would need:

21 Discussion + ALL GROUPS - Make a personal list of actions to reduce - Make a personal list of actions to reduce Your Ecological Footprint. Your Ecological Footprint. - Then vote for two actions that will make a difference! - Then vote for two actions that will make a difference!  Britt-Marie ”Is it important with biodiversity?” ”Is it important with biodiversity?”  Marcus E ”Is it important to save a threatened species?” ”Is it important to save a threatened species?”  Marcus H ”What kind of ecosystem-services do we need?” ”What kind of ecosystem-services do we need?”  Robert ”Are the human species more important than other species in nature?” ”Are the human species more important than other species in nature?”

22 Reducing footprint - examples  Try not to travel by car  Recycle  Not throw away food  Shorters showers  Turn off lights  Save water  Buy local products  Don´t throw things in nature  Unplug electric devices  Grow your own vegetables

23 Reduce Your Footprint - Voting  Use renewable energy  Recycle as much as possible.  Turn off electronics if you don´t use them.  Recycle more.  Try not to travel by car.  Use local products, like food.  Recycling is easy to do  Swith off electronic devices
