Overflow Coffee Bar, 1550 S. State St. on January 22, 2013 at 7 p.m. The 67-minute-long film will include a discussion afterwards with the event ending by 9 p.m. at the latest.
Both hard-hitting and inspiring, The Economics of Happiness demonstrates that millions of people across the world are already engaged in building a better world – that small scale initiatives are happening on a large scale. The film shows that countless initiatives are united around a common cause: rebuilding more democratic, human scale, ecological, and local economies – the foundation of an “economics of happiness.”
Discussion afterward will be lead by Local First Chicago. Local First Chicago is a network of locally owned, independent businesses, community organizations, and citizens joined together to keep money and character in our neighborhoods and build a thriving local living economy. In doing so, they hope to promote the overall social, economic, and environmental health of our economy and communities.
Transit/Parking - While the use of public transit (Red Line, #29, #62 and other buses are close) is encouraged, limited parking is available in the rear of the building on a first come first served basis. Bring $3 for your spot. No one will be in the lot to take it. You can pay at the ticket check-in table. To purchase tickets ($7 suggested donation) in advance, click here.
