From Findhorn, Scotland, a positive
and inspiring film about Findhorn ecovillage's transition to a low
carbon future. Featuring visionary leaders and pioneers in the
fields of Human Ecology and Global Transition, The Turning Point
takes an uplifting look at our potential to create a
life-sustaining society as we face the twin challenges of Peak Oil
and Climate Change.
The film looks at some of the
sustainability initiatives put into practice over the last 20
years around the Findhorn Foundation community in Scotland, an
interfaith spiritual community, ecovillage and international
center for holistic education. Powered by community-owned wind
turbines, Findhorn residents and visitors are fed from its own
community garden and community supported agriculture (CSA)
service, along with locally produced eggs, cheese, and baked
goods. The village uses its own car pooling service, a local
currency, and its own ecological sewage treatment system.
The documentary features interviews
Richard Heinberg, Author of
'Powerdown: Options and Actions for a Post-Carbon world'.
Rob Hopkins, Co-Founder of the
Transition Network, author of 'The Transition Handbook: From Oil
Dependency to Local Resilience'.
