The field of environmental annual report design is heating up, but Dinetz’s calm, collected presentation is pretty darn cool.

The world’s population demands the resources of 1.5 Earths annually. If everyone lived like the United States, it would be 5 Earths. Global Footprint Network is a think-tank and team of “ecological accountants” measuring human pressure on the planet. The annual results, and other Footprint tools, are used by countries to inform policy decisions in an effort to demand less of the Earth, protect more of its assets and achieve the goal of living within the means of one planet.

The biggest challenge with the project was obtaining quality images with a very limited budget. We found that photographers were very kind with donations and discounts when they understood what Global Footprint Network was trying to do with their research. It helps to have a good story. It’s how I got involved.
