The Science and Technology Film Series
Surviving ‘Progress’
Is Our Civilization Sustainable
Thoughtful films presented on the third Thursday each month

This film, produced by Martin Scorsese, asks difficult questions:

  • Can we distinguish good and bad progress?
  • Have our brains and our culture adapted to the
  • dizzying rate of technological change?
  • What is “natural capital” and can we stop using more than is sustainable?
  • What is the logic of our system of progress?
  • Is our economic system sustainable?
  • Can poor countries sell natural resources to private investors as a way to save them?
  • Is synthetic biology our salvation?
  • Should we change our genetic code?
  • Should we colonize another planet?

Learn what some of our best minds think of this.
