“GrowthBusters: Hooked on Growth” Documentary

Friday, November 4, 7:00 pm, at Union Hall, 27 School Street, Carlisle, MA.

Thursday, November 10, 7:00 pm at the Refuge Visitor Center, Assabet River National Wildlife Refuge, 680 Hudson Road, Sudbury, MA.

“Growthbusters: Hooked on Growth” is a non-profit documentary examining what may be the most critical issue of our time: the unsustainability of our society’s addiction to growth everlasting.

Have you ever questioned the “conventional wisdom” that growth will solve our problems?

Many of us are thinking about growth, yet so few of us are moving our lips. It is preventing us from making a dent in so many of our problems like sprawl, climate change, energy, dying oceans, pollution, traffic trauma, and heaps of trash.

Growth: Economic, consumption and population growth are overwhelming all that conservation and technology might do. Yet, we keep saying that perpetual growth will solve our problems – but many believe that this is really the FAILED conventional wisdom.

Come see a dramatic and riveting new documentary that shakes our common assumptions to the core with dramatic out-of-the-box conversation, analysis and thinking. It is a 90 minute feature film, by gifted producer Dave Gardner, which holds up a mirror to our culture, our values and our daily behavior.

Showing times and locations are listed about.

The movie, a discussion, and snacks are all free. For a taste, see http://www.growthbusters.org/ For more info, contact Mike Hanauer at MGHanauer@yahoo.com.
