What Is Overshoot Day? How Can You Stop It? Overshoot Day with Sháán díín Cedar

July 29th came in just like another day

 

People went through their daily lives, like just another day... 

 

But after 155 days in 2021, we have reached Earth Overshoot day

 

(a day that marks the moment in time when demand for earth’s ecological resources exceeds what the planet can regenerate.)

 

And each year, this day comes in earlier and earlier...

 

Its halfway through the year, and humans have already surpassed what global resources can sustain in a single year

 

The lumber we can sustainably harvest, the fisheries we fish, the ore we mine, the pollution we put in our waters...

 

Our planet needs a break… 

 

Here’s how we can make a difference 

 

Think about our demand for stuff.

Is it necessary? 

Is it resource intensive? 

Can we shift your demand toward the “reuse” economy?

 

Advocate for initiatives that your employer can take. Ask:

Do we have a sustainability and equity commitment and are we actively executing on it?

How do we source our products? Are there alternatives?

How are we tracking and reducing our carbon footprint?

 

Show up at the ballot box.

Look up your local, state, and federal leadership and put the pressure on.

Support and elect leadership strong on climate and environmental justice.

 

Call, email, tag, tweet at your leaders. They see these messages. Have a relationship with your leaders and demand actions.

Hold them accountable, but also give praise where praise is due.

 

Engage at whatever level you can manage

This translates to pushing the overshoot date back and ultimately reestablishing ecosystem balance. 

 

Our planet needs us.

Welcome to Indigenous Earth Community Podcast!

A great episode to start is Episode 21: "A poem for the Earth by an Indigenous Nahuatl Women Esmeralda Gonzales"

Welcome to Indigenous Earth Community Podcast

My name is Frank Oscar Weaver,  Growing up in Paraguay, I participated in many environmental projects with the Guarani People. Leading me to be initiated in a ritual called KUNUMI PEPY, a lip piercing ceremony.  Making me an official  member of the Pai Tavyteras . There I learn the Arandu Ka’aty, the traditional teachings of Earth Keeping.  

After I moved to the U.S I made many friends from different tribes and original habitants communities from all over the world, learning that every indigenous community also have similar traditions of protecting the planet. 

Now that the climate crisis is upon us, and our planet is changing, more then ever we need to listen to Indigenous communities who are at the forefront of climate resilience, and learn from them on how we can help heal the planet, and be more sustainable in our day to day life.

“Help Us Save Our Community” - A request from Osmar Valenzuela in Paraguay

Do you wanna help the environment, and at the same time support the indigenous people of Paraguay?

This weekend I got a message from my friend Osmar Valenzuela. 

He told me the story on how young members of the indigenous communities in Amambay, are being forced to abandoned their tribal lands and go into the cities in search of jobs. 
Osmar has an idea, to start an organization named “The way of the earth can provide for us ” an association made of leaders from 10 different communities to help promote their agricultural goods, and having the communities be self sustaining, that way they can still continue passing on the values, history, arts, culture of the Pai Tavytera to the next generation.

The association will keep protecting the environment by practicing sustainable agriculture practices and protecting medical plants and the knowledge on how to use them. 

 Can you help us keep the Pai Tavytera culture alive and help them protect their enviroment? Any donation would be appreciated it. 

Send me a an email if you can help frankoweaver @ gmail . com 

 

Thank you!

Timely interview with a member of the Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders community in Atlanta: Arjho Carino Turner

Happy to introduce my friend Arjho from the Blaan Indigenous community of the Philippines, She’s a champion for climate change, community involvement, and is an international activist in indigenous peoples' rights.  If you're passionate about indigenous people's rights and want to create change towards more sustainable future, you going to love our conversation. 

We talked 2 years to the day after meeting each other during the Climate Reality training, from what she called her "second home," Atlanta, Ga, and we talked about what we learned during our training to fight the climate crisis. 

Our conversation was just a few days before the crime that shook the country. As Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II, who we both saw in an interfaith mass in the Historic Ebenezer Baptist Church, MLK old church,  said "The lives of those who were killed here in Atlanta this week say something to us: All of us must come together, Black, white, brown, Asian, native, gay & straight. It's time to get it right, right here & right now, America" #StopAsianHate
