'Many of the Earth’s ecosystems are nearing critical tipping points of depletion or irreversible change, pushed by high population growth and economic development. By 2050, if current consumption and production patterns remain the same and with a rising population expected to reach 9.6 billion, we will need three planets to sustain our ways of living and consumption.'

The Australian Museum has plenty of resources to help you and your group organise an event. Be it a video conference, borrowing museum in a box or simply a morning tea at your school or workplace register your event on the United Nations page and let the world know what you are doing!
