How do you educate the kids about taking care of Mother Earth without making it another chewy chunk of curriculum? Transition Culver City will be hosting a family-friendly evening to help you stay on the path. The Economics of Happiness and Simon Says “Let’s Stop Climate Change!” will screen as part of an evening of fun on Saturday, June 25 from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at the reDiscover Center at 12958 W. Washington Blvd.
The evening will include a screening of the documentary The Economics of Happiness while children are invited to make art out of recycled materials and/or watch the animated short film, Simon Says, ‘Let’s Stop Climate Change!‘
Refreshments will be served, $5 suggested donation (to pay for the screening rights)
The Economics of Happiness features a chorus of voices from six continents, including Vandana Shiva, Bill McKibben, David Korten, Samdhong Rinpoche, Helena Norberg-Hodge, Michael Shuman, Zac Goldsmith and Keibo Oiwa. They tell us that climate change and peak oil give us little choice: we need to localize to bring the economy home. The good news is that as we move in this direction we will begin not only to heal the earth but also to restore our own sense of well-being. The Economics of Happiness challenges us to restore our faith in humanity, challenges us to believe that it is possible to build a better world. By by Helena Norberg-Hodge, Steven Gorelick & John Page.
Simon Says, “Let’s Stop Climate Change!” is a 28 minute animated film recommended for children ages 4 and up. With humor and song, the film teaches kids about global warming, the food chain, carbon footprints, composting, carbon offsetting and eco habits like the “three r’s” (reducing, reusing and recycling.)
