Movie Night with Sustainable North Grenville Monday, June 8th

How can we move beyond being merely consumers, debtors and creditors, and create a more equitable and sustainable economy that meets the needs and realities of the 21st century?

Sustainable North Grenville presents, Money and Life, a documentary movie that explores this question.
Money and Life is a compelling cinematic journey that examines the origins of money, how the role of money has changed over time, how it shapes our lives and world today, and the emerging movement to create new economic models that redefine our relationships with money.

The film presents a tapestry of expert interviews, narration, animated graphics and stories of individuals, communities and small businesses who are seeking innovative ways to transform their relationship with money at the personal, local and global level. Money and Life helps viewers understand the history and fundamentals of money in order to be more informed participants in the economic transformation happening around us.

“The old economy of endless growth… is dying. And a new economy, based on a new understanding of human nature and planetary health, is emerging.”

Join us on Monday, June 8th at the Branch Restaurant, 6:45 for 7pm start. Please consider helping us offset the cost of a public showing of this movie with a suggested donation of $2. Come and join us for a relaxed evening with movie snacks by donation from Chef Bruce and a cash bar.
