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. 

Panel to include:

Eddy Moretti, Chief Creative Officer, VICE; director, The Third Industrial Revolution

Jeremy Rifkin, American economic and social theorist, writer, public speaker, political advisor, and activist; author, The Third Industrial Revolution

Cecil Scheib, Assistant Vice President of Sustainability, New York University

Michael Shank, Communications Director for the Carbon Neutral Cities Alliance; Adjunct Assistant Professor, NYUSPS Center for Global Affairs
