Event Details

The International Society for Ecology and Culture and KPFA Radio present the San Francisco Bay Area launch of “The Economics of Happiness”.

A new film featuring acclaimed environmentalists, scholars and authors including, Vandana Shiva, Bill McKibben, David Korten, Juliet Schor, Richard Heinberg, accomplished Bhutanese film director Khyentse Norbu, and the first Prime Minister of the Tibetan Government-in-Exile Samdhong Rinpoche among others.

Screening of this 1 hour documentary about the worldwide movement for economic localization demonstrates that millions of people are already engaged in building a better world. The film shows that countless small scale initiatives around the world are exploring potential solutions to the multiple crises we face—climate chaos, economic meltdown, and our own personal suffering such as stress, loneliness, and depression. These initiatives are united around a common cause: rebuilding more democratic, human scale, ecological and local economies – the foundation of an “economics of happiness”.

The film will be followed by a panel discussion with co-director Helena Norberg-Hodge, author Richard Heinberg, and representatives from Bay Localize and the Sustainable Economies Law Center.
