Oct 22: Economics of Happiness film screening

Transition Pittsburgh's Fall Films for Resilience Series aims to round up friendly & intelligent folks to be entertained and inspired by a good movie, figuring out afterwards how to make our communities & lifestyles more resilient to economic, ecological, and environmental challenges.  The film is short and sweet, and definitely worth a watch.

Economics of Happiness synopsis, from IMDB: The Economics of Happiness features a chorus of voices from six continents calling for systemic economic change. The documentary 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 resisting those policies, demanding a re-regulation of trade and finance - and, far from the old institutions of power, they're starting to forge a very different future. Communities are coming together to re-build more human scale, ecological economies based on a new paradigm - an economics of localization.

7pm-8:15pm (film is 65 min) at the First United Methodist Church, 5401 Centre Ave.; Use S. Aiken/Liberty entrance to the Sanctuary.  There will be freshly popped, free, organic popcorn for all, too. Please RSVP if you can at the Meetup page (but please come even if you don't RSVP!).  The screening is free, but we'll be asking for donations to support screening licenses for future events. Paying it forward...
