HOMEA film by: Yann Arthus-Bertrand Narrator: Glenn Close We All Have A Date With The Planet!Using only aerial footage, Arthus-Bertrand showcases our planet’s interconnected systems, resources and stunning aesthetic beauty. Twenty years ago, the United Nations hosted the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, which brought together global and civic leaders to address sustainability issues and achieved credibility for these issues at the highest political levels. As the United Nations convenes the follow up to the Earth Summit, we at the Institute will bring together leaders at the local level to celebrate the work being performed globally, and consider how the topics of the RIO+20 conference— Jobs, Energy, Cities, Food, Water, Oceans, and Disasters—can be addressed right here in New York City. We look forward to an evening of connecting with each other, enjoying a film together, celebrating our progress and exchanging our ideas and experiences.
