Thursday, 20th October, 2022. Planet Local – A Quiet Revolution.
May Bain Room, Whangārei Library
5.30pm for a 6pm SCREENING.
Everyone is welcome to join a discussion after the film centred around what’s already happening locally and what more can we do to build a stronger, more connected community in our rohe.
This 50 minute film gives voice to a growing number of people around the globe, who are building a more beautiful world at a local level: featuring grassroots activists from around the world alongside internationally known figures like Russell Brand, Noam Chomsky, Vandana Shiva, Naomi Klein, Jane Goodall, Gabor Maté and Helena Norberg-Hodge.
Their wisdom and inspiration bring a refreshing clarity to the confusion currently dominating our topsy-turvey world.
The film shows innovating ways of supporting local businesses, growing local food, sharing traditional knowledge, opposing free trade treaties and challenging the crude, deceptive mainstream media narrative of ‘bigger is better’.
It highlights countless initiatives that are already underway to protect and restore human-scale local economies, communities and the natural world.
Its overridingly positive message shows how human beings don’t need to be the problem – We can be the solution.
