The first of the Colloquia Series starts on September 7, 2006 with Jeremy Rifkin speaking on The Hydrogen Economy and the European Dream. The Colloquia Series is a forum where the Geneva College community engage some of the compelling and provocative socio-cultural, scientific, religious, literary, educational, political, and economic ideas and practices that shape the world and the lives that we lead today and into the future.
Rifkin holds a degree in economics from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and a degree in international affairs from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University. He speaks frequently before government, business, labor and civic forums.
