Detroit, 9 January 2017
Mr. Rifkin joined Mark Fields, CEO of Ford, in Detroit to give a keynote speech at Ford’s “Cities of Tomorrow” symposium at the North American International Auto Show. The event also marked the announcement of the forthcoming film, The Third Industrial Revolution: A New Story for the Human Family. The film, presented by VICE and Ford, was exclusively previewed at “The City of Tomorrow” and explores the future of mobility, sustainability and climate change in cities, and how people can prepare to live productively, successfully and happily in the future. The session, moderated by VICE Chief Creative Officer Eddy Moretti, was designed to create a conversation for a brighter future, and drew insight from top entrepreneurs, disruptors and CEOs, including Rifkin, WeWork Founder and CEO Adam Neumann and Ford Chief Information Officer Marcy Klevorn.
