a famous French film (but with English subtitles where needed!) that links many of the world’s problems and various solutions, most of which are highly relevant to our action here.

A group of friends, alarmed by growing problems, especially climate change and the threatened Sixth Extinction, travelled the world filming examples of people working with answers to the issues.

The main topics (with some examples) are: 

agriculture (industrial vs small production)

energy (fossil fuels, climate change, Zero waste)

economy (Transition Towns, local currencies)

democracy (human rights, localization)

education (Finland’s teaching systems)
