Jeremy Rifkin, president of the Foundation on Economic Trends and EU policy advisor, explains what he calls the resilient society or age of resilience, in which he believes we now find ourselves, having left behind the age of progress. Rifkin reflects on the current times, marked by a changing economy, the climate crisis and the global pandemic, which he says will not be the last. According to his observations, he believes that this time of crisis and change will also bring with it great opportunities, new models of communication, employment, governance, new ways of organising ourselves in society. And there is a need for an education system that prepares new generations not only for new employment opportunities, but also for a completely new way of thinking about the world we live in.
