Overdevelopment, Overpopulation, Overshoot

Overdevelopment, Overpopulation, Overshoot (OVER) is an impressive piece of art crystallizing the ecological and social tragedies of humanity’s ballooning numbers and consumption. Filled with powerful and evocative images, OVER addresses the many challenges caused by human population size (7.3 billion) and growth (1.5 million people every week). OVER was created as the centerpiece of the 2015 Global Population Speak Out campaign, which offers people and organizations worldwide the opportunity to influence the future of life on this planet by giving voice to their aspirations for a more sustainable future. Speak Out promises to bring international attention to the many crises caused by human behavior and our already enormous population size — and the ongoing growth of global population numbers. At the same time, Speak Out also points the way towards a more sustainable human relationship with the planet: through early global population stabilization.  Through a vigorous pursuit and realization of a progressive human rights agenda, global population could stabilize as soon as the year 2050 at 8.3 billion. The keys to achieving this important milestone will be weakening and eliminating social injustices around the world, such as the low social-status of women in many countries..
