Film Screening and Discussion of"Growthbusters: Hooked on Growth"
Monday, April 9
Humanities Room 250, University of Colorado at Boulder
This documentary film examines the beliefs and behaviors preventing us from becoming a sustainable civilization. It takes a unique approach among modern environmental documentaries: Rather than dispensing facts about climate change; peak energy, food and water; and bio-diversity loss, it examines the cultural barriers that prevent us from acting rationally. It asks why population conversations are so difficult to have, and why a roaring economy is more important to us than a survivable planet. It explores our obsession with community growth and economic growth. Growthbusters holds up a mirror, encouraging us to examine the beliefs and behaviors we must leave behind, and the values we need to embrace, in order that our children can survive and thrive.
The film screening will be followed by a discussion with film's producer Dave Gardner and Dr. Al Bartlett.
Sponsored by the CU Environmental Center in conjunction with the Conference on World Affairs, April 9-13,www.colorado.edu/cwa/. This event is free and open to the public.
