“The Economics of Happiness”: Film Screening

Posted in Models, Research by Kate Archdeacon on April 15th, 2011

Both hard-hitting and inspirational, the film ‘The Economics of Happiness’ reveals some uncomfortable truths about today’s global economy, which is creating divisiveness, financial instability and environmental breakdown worldwide. But it also shows how people around the world are already engaged in exploring alternative visions of prosperity: uniting around a common cause to build more ecological, more human-scale, more local economies. The film features a chorus of voices from six continents, including Vandana Shiva, Zac Goldsmith, Bill McKibben, Khyentse Norbu Rinpoche, and Clive Hamilton.

Join us for a special, free screening of ‘The Economics of Happiness’ followed by an opportunity for discussion with producer and director, Helena Norberg-Hodge.
