Envisioning a Sustainable, Collaborative and Inclusive Economy

December 10, 2015 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Inspire Speakers Series and p4 Pittsburgh present: Envisioning a Sustainable, Collaborative and Inclusive Economy, with Jeremy Rifkin and Bill Generett

Our current economic model is obsolete and inadequate at serving the needs of our communities, citizens, the environment and future generations. This model, based on availability of cheap fossil fuels, is ready to be replaced by a new and resilient model built on connectedness, collaboration, innovation and empathy. This Third Industrial Revolution will integrate the power and prevalence of the internet with twenty-first century renewable energy technologies, while ensuring inclusion, diversity and opportunity for all of our citizens. Mr. Rifkin will present his vision and perspective on the future of the global economy, while Mr. Generett will discuss how the Pittsburgh region can bridge the gap between the soaring innovation economy and struggling communities.
