Scene from THE 4TH REVOLUTION (photo © Sorin Dragoi)

THE 4TH REVOLUTION presents the truly thrilling vision of a world community with an energy supply that is derived entirely from renewable sources – accessible to everyone, affordable, clean and free of pollution. A global restructuring process, shifting the balance of power and distributing capital more fairly, is now within our reach – all we have to do is embark upon it!

For instance: the most energy-efficient office building in the world is located in Germany – it produces more energy than it consumes! Renewable energies are securing the livelihoods of families in Mali and Bangladesh, by means of carefully planned financing models. And alternative energy concepts are also revolutionizing the automotive industry, inspiring entirely new approaches to mobility.

Carl-A. Fechner and his team followed the actions of committed celebrities, and spoke with top managers, African mothers, bankers, and aspiring activists all over the world.
