How much energy, water and land do we need to support our modern lifestyles? What is our Ecological footprint? And is it Sustainable?
Australia has the 5th highest ecological footprint in the world, which is a footprint around three times the global average.
Current estimates show if the world's population used resources at the same rate as Australians, we'd need the equivalent of 3 to 4 planets of resources each year.
