Social Innovation Sydney is proud to announce the Sydney launch screening of “The Economics of Happiness” film on Thursday the 5th of May, 2011.

‘The Economics of Happiness’ reveals some uncomfortable truths about today’s global economy, in which big banks and big business are simultaneously degrading the environment, destroying jobs and creating financial chaos. In stark contrast, it shows how people around the world are already engaged in exploring alternative visions of prosperity: uniting around a common cause to build more ecological, more human-scale, more local economies.

Join us for a special screening of ‘The Economics of Happiness’, a documentary about the worldwide movement for localisation, held at COFA at 6:30pm on Thursday, the 5th of May. With a panel discussion featuring Helena Norberg-Hodge following the film.

“Localization is about connection,” says Norberg-Hodge. “It is about re-establishing our interdependence with others as well as with the natural world around us. And this connection is fundamental to our very happiness.” In the faltering cracks of the global economy, these are the real “green shoots” to be hopeful about.
