The Economic of Happiness | 20 Jul 2015

Featuring a chorus of voices from six continents, from experts to local people, who are calling for systemic economic change, The Economics of Happiness casts light on a world moving simultaneously in two opposing directions. While governments and big business continue to promote globalization and the consolidation of corporate power, all around the world people are resisting those policies, demanding a re-regulation of trade and finance – and, far from the old institutions of power, they’re starting to forge a different future. Communities are coming together to re-build more human scale, ecological economies based on a new model – a progressive economics of localization.

Shifting the focus back to London, photographer and filmmaker Jonathan Goldberg is joining us for a showing of his short ‘Shaking the Tree’, which will kickstart a discussion on local initiatives, from finance, to energy co-ops and food growing – we’ll be posting updates here and on twitter so keep an eye out. And, if you are involved with a re-localisation initiative, please get in touch films@transitionhighbury.org.uk
