What’s On @ The Tonsley Pod:

Thursday 23 November:

  • Lunchtime Movie Screening: 'The Economics of Happiness' + post-movie discussion

    Bring along your lunch and join us for a FREE movie screening of The Economics of Happiness. Popcorn provided!

    This award-winning documentary film spells out the social, spiritual, and ecological costs of today’s global economy. Importantly, the film also highlights the many benefits of a shift towards the local, and showcases some of the steps people are already taking worldwide.

    The Economics of Happiness restores our faith in humanity and challenges us to believe that it is possible to build a better world.

    Engage in lively discussion after the movie to share your impressions of the movie and thoughts on how we as a community could move forward.
