April 27: Shira Speaking on a Panel at The Economics of Happiness Screening

Posted on April 24, 2011 by shira

McKenzie Jones-Rounds and I will be talking about Share Tompkins during the panel portion of this event…

Wednesday, April 27, 7-9:30pm
Cinemapolis
120 E. Green St., Ithaca, NY
RSVP on Facebook

Sustainable Tompkins is hosting a community conversation on sustainable economy at Cinemapolis. They’ll be screening the Ithaca premiere of The Economics of Happiness – a film by Helena Norberg-Hodge, Steven Gorelick and John Page, and a project of the International Society for Ecology and Culture (ISEC).

Relocalization of our economy is essential if we are to buffer ourselves from speculative bubbles and escalating food and energy prices. How can we transform our personal household economies to build in long-term resiliency and well being? How can we work together to design a local economy that works for everyone and takes advantage of the power of entrepreneurship, sharing, self-provisioning, and local investment? What principles should guide us?

After the first screening, a panel of local community leaders from Sustainable Tompkins, Southside Community Center, Share Tompkins, Local First Ithaca, Tompkins County Workers Center, Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County, Alternatives Federal Credit Union, and Tompkins Workforce NY will outline our progress in creating a more sustainable local economy and suggest opportunities to pursue in the next few years.

Audience members are encouraged to bring their ideas and to share news on other local initiatives. Tickets are offered on a sliding scale of $5-$10 at the door, or can be purchased in advance by contacting elizasalon@yahoo.com.
