Then, on February 24th we will show Shift Change. This film shows the amazing economic transformation that Cooperatives have had on the Mondragon Region of Spain.
On March 31st we will show The Economics of Happiness, this film describes the effects of globalization on culture, peoples ability to achieve happiness and what we can do to change it.
Our community discussions after the films will always concentrate on what positive steps we can take to make a difference within our neighborhoods as well as ourselves.
