Permaculture Movie Night: The Powerdown Show

  • Jan 5, 2010 · 7:00 PM
  • Zero Station

Please join us for the fourth evening of our
2009|2010 Permaculture Movie Night Series. This month we will be viewing several segments of
The Powerdown Show, produced by the Cultivate Centre of Ireland. More info about this screening:
The Powerdown Show is a 10-part TV series that takes a fresh and engaging look at the community responses to the converging challenges of climate change and peak oil. We have a golden opportunity to create a far better, more sustainable way of life. Millions around the world – many in your own community – are already making the transition to local resilience. Your vision is needed too. Welcome to The Powerdown Show.... "Bursting with insightful analysis and creative solutions to the twin challenges of climate change and peak oil, The Powerdown Show is an inspirational pointer to life beyond fossil fuels. Essential viewing – a flash of light in the darkness." - Rob Hopkins, Founder of the Transition Movement ----------------------------------------- This is not a potluck event but feel free to bring a beverage or fruit or sweet treat to share during the film if you so desire!
Update, January 4th: I'm inclined to invited anyone who wants to come at 6:30 for a "social" half-hour to do so! I'll bring some beverages. Join me if you'd just like to chat and catch up and talk about some upcoming events before they've even been posted! Movie will start sometime between 7:00 and 7:10pm.
Discussion and dessert to follow. *Thank you to our friends at Zero Station for hosting the 2009|2010 Permaculture Movie Nights*

    It's always good to see Lisa and to meet new people interested in the same things. I enjoyed seeing some concrete things that people are doing to Power down.

    It is always a good to be reminded of where we stand in the energy consumption arena. I enjoyed listening to the woman who spoke most about the inter connectivity of all our systems.

    I particularily liked the Powerdown Show. The episodes were informative and organized. Unfortunately I left after the third episode; just when it was starting to get good :) I have heard these episodes are available online and will continue to watch the series. I liked the idea of the planned village and would like to see the specific organization (waste/water management, space alottment) that went into it and the outcome of such a well planned community. I am not sold on the idea of a localized currency, but the effect it can have I definitely support, Support Local!
