Two Award-winning films
A prelude to The Economics of Happiness Conference...

The International Society for Ecology and Culture (ISEC) is pleased to bring you a thought provoking evening with film directors Helena Norberg-Hodge and Carol Black. Join us for back-to-back documentary film screenings of The Economics of Happiness and Schooling the World followed by discussion. Refreshments will be available for purchase.  

The Economics of Happiness deconstructs the myths of economic globalization and takes the viewer on a world tour of inspiring grassroots initiatives, revealing along the way how localized economies are essential to our very well-beingfrom urban gardens in Detroit to Transition Towns in the UK, far from the old institutions of power, people are starting to forge a very different future. The film has won several awards including "Best in Show" at the Cinema Verde Environmental Film Festival 2011 in Gainesville, Florida. The trailer can be viewed on the film's website:

Schooling the World takes a challenging look at the role of modern education in the destruction of the world's last sustainable indigenous cultures, and calls for a "deeper dialogue" in which we realize we have as much to learn as we have to teach.  Education activist and founder of Universidad de la Tierra Gustavo Esteva says this film is, "Powerful, effective, direct, clearand at the same time poetic, subtle, delicate, tender." The trailer can be viewed on the film's website:  

Inspired by the directors' first-hand experiences in the ancient cultures of the Himalayas, both films provide a rich analytical context for today's most pressing problems and offer realistic solutions.  This event is a prelude to The Economics of Happiness conference. Also hosted by ISEC, the conference seeks to provide clarity on the way forward  towards more truly sustainable ways of living. It will cover a range of interconnected topics, including public policy choices; local initiatives in food, energy, education, business and banking; the need to bridge the North-South divide; and the influence of the economy on our psychological well-being.
