Green Film Looks at Root of Sustainability Issues

Montclair’s Office of Environmental Affairs presents their next free Green Film Series screening on Thursday, September 19, 6:00 p.m., at the Montclair Public Library, 50 South Fullerton Avenue, 07042.

“The Sequel: What Will Follow Our Troubled Civilization?” shines a light on the work and legacy of David Fleming, a historian, economist, and ecologist who dared to re-imagine a thriving civilization after the collapse of our current mainstream economies, and thereby inspired the Transition Towns movement.

This new film – an official selection in the 2019 Global Peace Film Festival – takes us around the world to meet people as they develop the skills, the will, and the resources necessary to re-imagine civilization, often in the ruins of collapsed mainstream economies.

We encounter extraordinary projects and people from four continents, from the likes of renegade economist Kate Raworth, conservative philosopher Roger Scruton, and Gaian ecologist Stephan Harding, to localization revolutionary Helena Norberg-Hodge, eco-pioneer Jonathon Porritt, and philanthropist composer Peter Buffett, among many others. Together they are cultivating a resilience not reliant on the impossible promise of eternal economic growth, while developing diverse, satisfying, convivial contexts for lives well-lived.

Bring a friend, a neighbor, or your family futurist to this free event. For questions, call Montclair Environmental Affairs at 973-509-5721, or, email: grussell@montclairnjusa.org.
