ReInventing the World is a series for all those who want to know the good news about how we can reinvent the world to make it work better for all of us. This three-part series of 50-minute documentaries with host, Des Kennedy, looks at some of the biggest challenges facing us today - work and time, food, and urban sustainability - and how innovative thinkers and doers from the famous to the obscure, from Berkeley to Sao Paolo, Brazil, are coming up with some of the ways of getting there from here. This is a series that offers hope to all of us. Amongst those interviewed are Stewart Brand, Paul Hawken, Jeremy Rifkin and Matthew Fox (Work & Time); Frances Moore Lappé and Joan Gussow (Food); Jane Jacobs and Bill McKibben (Cities). -- The programs in the series are: Work & Time - A program about stress. How we can overcome being over-worked and out of time. - Food - Devising a sustainable food system -- one that is healthy, accessible, and affordable. - Cities - Is "sustainable cities" an oxymoron or can they be made to work?
