Episode SUMMARY

The economic growth of industrialized nations, motivated by the pursuit of ever-greater profits, has driven a blind and irrational exploitation of the planet’s non-renewable natural resources. Since the industrial revolution, the market economy has dictated the standards of a capitalist system that has shown little concern for environmental and social values.

More recently, we have become aware of the effects that such blind and unfettered economic development can have on our shared future. Convinced that it is still possible to reverse this trend, some Architects of Change are defying established norms by advocating for a green economy, within an inflexible system that must nonetheless be changed and redefined to meet the needs of future generations.
