Film screening of "The Sequel" followed by discussion

Bennet's Club

£4.00

This will be one of its first screenings of THE SEQUEL in the UK. This new film recognises the fundamental unsustainability of today's society and dares to ask the big question: What will follow? What would it look like to create economies that can thrive without endlessly growing? This film shows a future built on community, carnival, and conviviality.. "The Sequel". It looks at the influential work of David Fleming, who dared to re-imagine a thriving civilization after the collapse of our current mainstream economies and inspired the Transition Towns movement. Join us for an inspiring film screening followed by discussion and questions and pledging how you can take action. The cost for this event is £4 (£3 for concessions), payable at the door.

This film will awaken the intellect to harmonize with earth's systems...We find a treasure trove of ecological and humanitarian analysis and practices that call upon our higher selves to work for the good of all life." Jim Merkel, Author, Radical Simplicity: Small Footprints on a Finite Earth, Director, Global Living Project, Film Director, Saving Walden's World "I highly recommend The Sequel...Through two decades of work on climate issues, I've come to appreciate that our challenges are less political and technological than we imagine them to be. Rather, our core challenges are relational and social - of how we can come to understand ourselves as connected to community across scales from local to global. An inspirational and particularly useful touchstone for those thinking about and seeking to secure a just, sustainable and resilient future for all."
