Buy Local Reno Sparks Business Co-Op and Green Business Chamber with Artemesia Moviehouse are happy to be launching 2013 Films for Action series with screening of the Economics of Happiness, a film about communities coming together to re-build more human scale, ecological economies based on a new paradigm – an economics of localization.

Economics of Happiness features a chorus of voices from six continents calling for systemic economic change featuring Vandana Shiva, Bill McKibben, David Korten, Michael Shuman, Juliet Schor, Richard Heinberg, Rob Hopkins, Andrew Simms, Zac Goldsmith, Samdhong Rinpoche (secretary for the Tibetan Government in exile), Clive Hamilton, Mohau Pheko, Keibo Oiwa and more.

The documentary describes a world moving simultaneously in two opposing directions. On the one hand, globalization and the consolidation of corporate power continue to be promoted.  At the same time, all around the world people are demanding a re-regulation of trade and finance - and forging a NEW future.

The Economics of Happiness provides inspiration, and practical solutions like our regional Buy Local = Jobs and Think Local First initiatives.. Arguing that economic localization is a strategic solution multiplier that can solve our most serious problems, the film spells out policy changes needed to enable local businesses to survive and prosper. We are introduced to community initiatives that are moving the localization agenda forward, including urban gardens in Detroit, Michigan and the Transition Town movement in Totnes, UK much like our own TransitionReno efforts.

Screening is to be followed with panel discussion.

It is also our intention to develop Community Action Guides to help us with taking action after viewing and discussing the film.
