As we enter 2020, it’s a great time to imagine our collective future.
World Community screens the documentary, The Sequel, Tuesday, Jan. 21 at 7 p.m. in the Stan Hagen Theatre at North Island College. The film explores the work of environmental economist David Fleming and the vibrant Transition Movement his ideas inspired.
Around the world, people are developing the skills, will, and resources necessary to re-imagine civilization, even in the event of an uncertain future. We encounter extraordinary projects and people such as renegade economist Kate Raworth, philosopher Roger Scruton, Gaian ecologist Stephan Harding, and localization revolutionary Helena Norberg-Hodge.
These visionaries are cultivating a resilience not reliant on the impossible promise of eternal economic growth. Instead, they are developing diverse alternatives and rekindling hope in the creativity and intelligence of people to nurse our communities and ecology back to health.
