This 47-minute documentary examines the need for integration of environmental, economic, and social action for the purpose of creating a future that is green, profitable, fair, and 'glocal'. It calls for a new societal operating system that is grounded in the life of community and dedicated to the health and resilience of people, markets, and ecosystems. Exploring both the promise and limitations of sustainability in the twenty-first century, the filmmaker, Dr. Monty Hempel, a national leader in sustainability thought and practice, offers a personal and professional assessment of what is needed to replace the old operating system of industrial growth that has given rise to a series of interlocking crises in finance, energy, food, water, poverty, biodiversity, climate disruption, and population growth.
