About the book behind the film:

We're overusing the earth’s finite resources, and yet excessive consumption is failing to improve our lives. In Enough Is Enough, Rob Dietz and Dan O'Neill lay out a visionary but realistic alternative to the perpetual pursuit of economic growth—an economy where the goal is enough, not more. They explore specific strategies to conserve natural resources, stabilise population, reduce inequality, fix the financial system, create jobs, and more—all with the aim of maximising long-term well-being instead of short-term profits. Filled with fresh ideas and surprising optimism, Enough Is Enough is the primer for achieving genuine prosperity and a hopeful future for all. Find out more about the book behind the film here

Kindest regards,

    Just a reminder to all attending that you must register for a ticket on Eventbrite if you haven't already. We're pretty much sold out. Also, as Owen and I will be helping with coordination of the event, we can't arrange to meet the thinquers before of after so anyone happy to volunteer to meet in the foyer?
