Evolve Green Sundays – Economics of Happiness

Evolve Green Sundays – Economics of Happiness

13 February 2011, 5pm – 7:20pm  www.greensundays.org.uk 

Green Sundays, the informal get-together blending environmental issues with the arts is back in 2011.  Join us on Sunday, 13th February for a special film screening and discussion exploring economic growth at Evolve in South Kensington. Presented in collaboration with the New Economics Foundation and CEECEC, the films on view explore the way our society is based on ‘growth’ – the notion that more money, more goods and more services are needed by us all to lead fulfilling lives. But the financial meltdown of 2008 and the subsequent recession has shaken belief in the power of the pound.  Coupled with climate change and globalisation many are starting to wonder if “indefinite growth is sustainable?”  Are we being led into an environmental and social catastrophe?  And is there anything we can do about it? Come along to see informative films, hear inspirational speakers and discover practical solutions. All welcome.
