“What happens when an Internet revolution merges with a renewable energy revolution?” -Jeremy Rifkin

Facebook sensation, Sustainable Man, continues to release inspiring and educational content. This video, starring Jeremy Rifkin, is no exception. It centers around the concept of a new Third Industrial Revolution – one based on a distributed, lateral power instead of top-down centralized power structure. Key components to the coming shift are active online communities, independent media, new technologies, and renewable energy. This is fueled by people working in a cooperative rather than competitive way towards common goals that benefit the greater community.

Sustainable Human is putting the concept into practice with a wealth of resources for this emerging online movement of engaged change-makers. Empowered individuals sharing local solutions online are creating a lot of inspiration for a sustainable future and becoming the change that they would like to see in the world. This kind of participatory collaboration is a whole lot more exciting than the content typically broadcast on corporate media outlets. Share it with friends, spark a conversation in your circles. How do you envision our current society shifting into a more sustainable one?
