Event description

Description

We have this constant pressure to have bigger, better, more – yet we are not necessarily any happier. How can we re-establish our connection to others and the natural world?

The Economics of Happiness is a documentary which spells out the social, spiritual, and ecological costs of today’s global economy. The film argues that the three key mechanisms government uses to shape the economy - regulation, tax and subsidies - are used to favour the big companies and the global corporations. We need to level the playing field. What if a fraction of the subsidies that goes to nuclear power or fossil fuels went into renewable energy?

The film highlights the benefits of a shift towards the local, and showcases some of the steps people are already taking worldwide. For example, the emerging food-based movement creating consumer-producer co-ops, community supported agriculture, farmer’s markets, edible school yards, permaculture, urban gardens, slow food etc - all examples of ordinary people creating an alternative way of connecting to each other and nature.

This film is for those who know that things need to change and are looking for what is possible.

This event will take place on Wednesday 13th SEPTEMBER 2017 from 7pm to 8.45pm.

Doors open at 7.00pm. Documentary starts at 7.15pm. Total running time is 68 mins. The screening will be followed by a 30-minute discussion on the issues raised in the film and what is possible here and now.
