Feb. 2 | Attend The Economics of Happiness: Film Showing and Discussion
The Economics of Happiness challenges us to restore our faith in humanity, challenges us to believe that it is possible to build a better world. The film describes a world moving simultaneously in two opposing directions. On the one hand, an unholy alliance of governments and big business continues to promote globalization and the consolidation of corporate power. At the same time, people all over the world are resisting those policies, demanding a re-regulation of trade and finance, and, far from the old institutions of power, communities are coming together to re-build more human scale, ecological economies based on a new paradigm - an economics of localization.

The film features expert insights from Vandana Shiva, Bill McKibben, David Korten, Samdhong Rinpoche, Helena Norberg-Hodge, Michael Shuman, Zac Goldsmith and Keibo Oiwa, among others. An audience Q&A featuring staff from HowMany.org, The Buddhist Peace Fellowship and The International Society for Ecology and Culture (ISEC) will follow the film.

Time & Location: 7 - 9 p.m. at Berkeley Ecology Center, 2530 San Pablo Ave.
Cost: Free and open to all ages, donations accepted
Info: 510-548-2220 x233, beck@ecologycenter.org.
