"In June 2012, "Welcome to the Anthropocene"—a film about the state of the planet—opened the UN's Rio+20 summit on sustainable development. The summit was the largest UN meeting to date.

A 3-minute journey through the last 250 years of our history, from the start of the Industrial Revolution to the Rio+20 Summit. The film charts the growth of humanity into a global force on an equivalent scale to major geological processes."

"Our greatest opportunity, and our most urgent responsibility, lies in enabling and accelerating a consciousness shift to an ethos of collaboration in our economic affairs, rather than ever-greater competition. Difficult for sure, but there is no palatable alternative."
