Future of the Environment

Which emerging technologies could help us in our efforts to preserve the environment? How can they maximize the efficiency of our use of natural resources? What are the risks that these new technologies could bring about for our environment, and what can we do to contain them?

In this week’s episode of "A Glimpse into the Future", we talk to Jim Leape, Co-Director of the Center for Oceans Solutions at Stanford University; and Celine Herweijer, Partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers. Both are also members of the World Economic Forum's Council on the Future of Environment and Natural Resource Security.
