Come for free food, movie screening and discussion. We will be screening 2 short films:

The Next Industrial Revolution" (55 mins)
McDonough and Braungart work with corporations with over half a trillion dollars in annual sales, companies like Ford and Nike, to redesign buildings, processes, and products to work according to nature's rules.

"Who Killed Economic Growth"   (6 mins)
Richard Heinberg of Post Carbon Institute updates the early optimism of "The Next Industrial Revolution" by proposing a startling diagnosis: humanity has reached a fundamental turning point in its economic history. The expansionary trajectory of industrial civilization is colliding with non-negotiable natural limits.
