Join us for the launch of our monthly Greenflix.ca film series! Doors open at 7pm and the film starts at 7:30
Our Opening Night film is The Economics of Happiness. In addition to debunking mainstream-media myths about the benefits of a globalized economy, the film also offers inspiring examples of the growing number of alternative local economies improving quality of life in surprising ways for many around the world.
There will be a facilitated discussion after the screening for those who wish to stay and explore the film's message. 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 starting to forge a very different future. Communities are coming together to re-build, on a more human scale, ecological economies based on a new paradigm – an economics of localization.
