The Economics of Happiness

THE ECONOMICS OF HAPPINESS (film, 80 minutes) – on realistic solutions to our serious crises.

Five years in the making, The Economics of Happiness is a global tour-de-force that draws inspiration from initiatives around the world – urban gardens in Detroit, Transition Towns in England, hands-on education in Japan, community farming in India, cultural preservation in Peru – illustrating economic localisation at work, to help repair our damaged ecosystems, our societies, and ourselves.

It features acclaimed environmentalists, scholars, and authors, including Vandana Shiva, Zac Goldsmith, Bill McKibben, David Korten, Juliet Schor, Richard Heinberg, Helena Norberg-Hodge, and Bhutanese film director Khyentse Norbu.

The film shows that millions of people are already engaged in building a better world; that small scale initiatives are happening on a large scale; and that they are the foundations of an economics of happiness.
