NYU Cantor Film Center
3:30pm Panel Discussion with Film Director and VICE Chief Creative Officer, Eddy Moretti, economic and social theorist Jeremy Rifkin and panelists.
The global economy is in crisis. Our biosphere’s inability to absorb human activity, combined with the exhaustion of natural resources, declining productivity, slow growth, rising unemployment, and steep inequality, forces us to rethink our economic models. Where do we go from here? In this feature-length documentary, social and economic theorist Jeremy Rifkin lays out a road map to usher in a new era of sustainable development. A Third Industrial Revolution will unfold when three technologies emerge and converge: new communication, new sources of energy, and new modes of mobility. But in the context of climate change, this revolution needs to happen fast.
