External media contacts, please join our media and press release distribution list by sending an email to with subject: “ADD ME TO THE DISTRIBUTION LIST“.

Note: The exact date of Earth Overshoot Day is released on World Environment Day (June 5). Country Overshoot Days are released by December 31 of the year prior.

By hovering with your mouse over the “Newsroom” menu, you will find information how the days are calculated, new (and older) press releases, and infographics that may be useful.

If you want to be part of the official campaign, or have us participate in yours, please contact us months before the actual date as we get busy and have limited capacity to react.
