The Economics of Happiness

Join us for a screening of The Economics of Happiness, a documentary about the worldwide movement for localisation, followed by a panel discussion with producer and director Helena Norberg-Hodge.

Where: Darebin Arts and Entertainment Centre

When: Sunday, 1st May, 6.00pm
Venue is open to ticket holders from 5.00pm

Both hard-hitting and inspirational, ‘The Economics of Happiness’ reveals some uncomfortable truths about today’s global economy, which is creating divisiveness, financial instability and environmental breakdown worldwide. In stark contrast, it shows how people around the world are already engaged in exploring alternative visions of prosperity: uniting around a common cause to build more ecological, more human-scale, more local economies.

The film features a chorus of voices from six continents, including Vandana Shiva, Zac Goldsmith, Bill McKibben, Khyentse Norbu Rinpoche, and Clive Hamilton.
