The Economics of Happiness (film)

Have you seen this film? I watched it a while back to see if it is suitable as a Transition film. It is all about the evils of globalisation including climate change, economic insecurity , misuse of resources and species extinction - as well as the personal costs such as stress and depression - and the benefits of localisation.

The Powerdown Show/ The Turning Point Wed 19th October.

I see the Arts Picturehouse is offering a double bill of films about Peak Oil and the Transition Towns movement next Wednesday 19th October. What I like about Transition films is the inspiration they convey, showing what can be achieved when community spirit combines with positive vision generating practical action.   Its about small projects combining together towards a coherent strategy. These films aren't just about extraordinary individuals or fringe communities.
