2011 Jan 24: Special screening: The Economics of Happiness in Toronto

Monday 2011 January 24, 5:30 pm – 9:30 pm
William Doo Auditorium, University of Toronto
45 Willcocks St

Attend a special screening of ‘The Economics of Happiness’, a new documentary film by Helena Norberg-Hodge about the worldwide movement for economic localization.

The film features a chorus of voices calling for systemic economic change, including: Vandana Shiva, David Korten, Michael Shuman, Richard Heinberg, Rob Hopkins, Juliet Schor, Zac Goldsmith, Bill McKibben, and Samdhong Rinpoche, the Prime Minister of Tibet’s government in exile. If you can’t attend the launch event, there are other ways to be involved.

The film will be preceded by a reception and exhibit of artwork by Sheridan College students entitled “Animating Good Food Ideas”. It will be followed by a discussion between producer Helena Norberg-Hodge, activist chef Joshna Maharaj, urban farmer Eric Rosenkrantz, moderated by author Wayne Roberts.

A $15 donation is greatly appreciated; no one turned away for a lack of funds.
