Sunday 18th January 7:30pm. Film Showing: Voices of Transition
Global environmental trends – climate change, peak oil and food insecurity are forcing us to confront problems with our industrial agricultural system. Powered by the conviction that these crises can be a major catalyst for positive change, ‘Voices in Transition’ casts a spotlight on the ‘Transition Town’ movement, introducing inspiring stories from France, England and Cuba.

In ‘Powerful’, green economy educator David Chernushenko embarks on a global journey to examine the alternatives to the conventional energy system, experiencing the critical resistance being met along the way. Tackling the spin of the big energy lobby and, equally, dispelling the myths of a ‘green utopia’ Powerful is a candid examination of what a sustainable future could look like. From amazing innovators, eccentric eco-activists to average communities completely powered by renewable energy, David will begin to discover that the true power is in the political, economic and democratic change that the clean energy revolution can deliver.
