Screening of the film Enough is Enough
The film lays out a visionary but realistic alternative to the perpetual pursuit of economic growth -- an economy where the goal is enough, not more. It explores specific strategies to fix the financial system, reduce inequality, and create jobs. The film includes interviews with leading economists, politicians, and sustainability thinkers such as Tim Jackson, Kate Pickett, Andrew Simms, Natalie Bennett, and Ben Dyson. It is produced and directed by UK film-maker Tom Bliss, and includes illustrations by Polyp, cartoonist for New Internationalist magazine.
The sceening will be followed by a Panel discussion.
