This Changes Everything_STEPH

Screening of the documentary film This Changes Everything, by Avi Lewis and Naomi Klein, with discussion afterwards with the Harmony Group.

In conjunction with the big climate conference in Paris, we present this topical film that follows “seven powerful portraits of communities on the front lines, from Montana’s Powder River Basin to the Alberta Tar Sands, from the coast of South India to Beijing and beyond. Interwoven with these stories of struggle is Klein’s narration, connecting the carbon in the air with the economic system that put it there. Throughout the film, Klein builds to her most controversial and exciting idea: That we can seize the existential crisis of climate change to transform our failed economic system into something radically better.”

The Harmony Group has been studying different aspects of complex systems and how to intervene with them, initially inspired by the systems thinking behind the early climate research of Limits to Growth.

Soup at 18:00, movie at 19:00, followed by a short break and then discussion.
