Movie Screening


As part of the Sunshine Coast Council's "GREEN JUNE"
we are joining them to put on a film evening
 at the Nambour Civic Centre Cinema on Wednesday 22nd June.

This will consist of 7 short films - the winners of the Eco flicks - and the main showing being the more substantial doco. by Helena Norberg-Hodge, Steven Gorelick & John Page"THE ECONOMICS OF HAPPINESS".

We will be given a short moment to relate this to our own work and that of Transition world wide at the end, and there will be drinks and a small expo in the foyer from 5.30pm with the films kicking off at 6pm

The film that argues that ‘Going local’ is a powerful strategy to help repair our fractured world – our ecosystems, our societies and ourselves. Far from the old institutions of power, people are starting to forge a very different future. The Economics of Happiness describes a world moving simultaneously in two opposing directions. On the one hand, government and big business continue to promote globalization and the consolidation of corporate power. At the same time, all around the world people are resisting those policies, demanding a re-regulation of trade and finance—and, far from the old institutions of power, they’re starting to forge a very different future. Communities are coming together to re-build more human scale, ecological economies based on a new paradigm – an economics of localization.

We hear from a chorus of voices from six continents including Samdhong Rinpoche, the Prime Minister of Tibet's government in exile, Vandana Shiva, Bill McKibben, David Korten and Zac Goldsmith. They tell us that climate change and peak oil give us little choice: we need to localize, to bring the economy home. The good news is that as we move in this direction we will begin not only to heal the earth but also to restore our own sense of well-being. The Economics of Happiness restores our faith in humanity and challenges us to believe that it is possible to build a better world.
