Movie Night

@ Foyer Oxford, 196 Oxford St, Leederville

Fortnightly community movie nights with TTMH are here! 
Grab yourself some dinner, pull up a beanbag or cushion, 
and join us for a free inspiring movie 
every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month, 
starting in May 2016.

At 6pm on Wednesday 11 May 2016, there will be a special screening of ‘The Economics of Happiness’, a documentary about the worldwide movement for localization, held at Foyer Oxford, 196 Oxford Street, Leederville.   

Both hard‐hitting and inspiring, ‘The Economics of Happiness’ demonstrates that millions of people across the world are already engaged in building a better world – that small scale initiatives are happening on a large scale.

The film shows that countless 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 features a chorus of voices from six continents calling for systemic economic change, including David Korten, Bill McKibben, Vandana Shiva, Rob Hopkins, Richard, Heinberg, Juliet Schor, Michael Shuman, Helena Norberg‐Hodge, and Samdhong Rinpoche ‐ the Prime Minister of Tibetʹs government in exile.

“A must‐see film for the future of the planet.” (Zac Goldsmith, Member of UK Parliament)

Health chickens in the suburbs
Grow your own fruit and vegies
Stay afterwards for a Community Connect Dinner (a no waste event) where you will meet more like-minded locals and share a "pot luck" dinner with new friends.  Bring a dish along to share with other locals, and see how you might get involved in creating a more sustainable urban environment (for example, we have people interested in composting, fruit and vegetable gardening, cycle commuting, sewing, seed saving, natural cleaning products, native gardens, urban chickens, and much more).

Share a meal with like-minded locals
After dinner, stay and watch a short movie (1 hour duration) about the world-side movement of Transition Towns. "In Transition 2.0" is the new film from Transition Network, capturing inspiring stories of Transition initiatives around the world, responding to uncertain times with creativity, solutions and 'engaged optimism'.
