School for Wellbeing Studies and Research would like to extend an invitation to you to attend the Bangkok special screening of ‘the Economics of Happiness’, a new documentary film by the International Society for Ecology & Culture (ISEC) about the worldwide movement for economic localization.
‘The Economics of Happiness’ features a chorus of voices from six continents calling for systemic economic change. The documentary describes a world moving simultaneously in two opposing directions. On the one hand, government and Big Business continue to promote globalization and the consolidation of corporate power. At the same time, 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 very different future. Communities are coming together to re-build more human scale, ecological economies based on a new paradigm - an economics of localization.
The special screening will be held on Tuesday, 15 February 2011 between 1:00-4:00 pm. at the 14 October 73 Memorial Conference Room, 14 October 73 Memorial Foundation, Rajadamnern Road, BKK. The film will be followed by a post-screening discussion with Helena Norberg-Hodge.
