An architect of the EU’s long-term vision and an advisor to heads of state around the world, Jeremy Rifkin joins Zac Goldsmith to share his vision of the age to come.
‘One of the foremost thinkers of our time’ – Rajendra Pachauri, Chairman of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
A giant of global affairs whose ideas have shaped the EU’s long-term economic vision and the industrial strategy of the People’s Republic of China, and have inspired CEOs, politicians, and scientists in positions of real power and significance, Jeremy Rifkin is not only a leading scholar of the forces that shape the future: he is, himself, a driving force for change.
In conversation with politician and environmentalist Zac Goldsmith, he joins How To Academy to share his insights into a massive coming transformation of our economy and our lives.
Humans have long believed we could force the natural world to adapt to us; only now are we beginning to face the fact that it is we who will have to adapt to survive and thrive in an unpredictable natural world.
Jeremy Rifkin will describe this great transformation and its profound effect on the way we think about the meaning of our existence, our economy, and how we govern ourselves as the earth rewilds around us.
Don’t miss this chance to hear a world-renowned expert and global governmental advisor on the impact of technological changes on human life and the environment.
