Does the idea of a world centred around people, not profit sound good to you? Are you interested in being inspired by people seeking new ways of organizing our society around cooperative goals, not zero-sum competition? Then a documentary screening on Oct. 20 will be a chance to meet up with like-minded Revelstokians and learn more about innovative community development initiatives.
Revelstoke Credit Union will host a screening of the documentary film A New Economy at the Revelstoke Performing Arts Centre on October 20.
A New Economy is focused on the new economy movement, and the hundreds of global innovations being funded and developed through unconventional models by the many people working toward a new economy, including co-operatives and credit unions.
It highlights a demand for the restructuring of traditional economic practices, and highlights the stories of people who are seeking alternatives to traditional business models through enterprises that are sustainable, democratic, socially-conscious and rooted in their communities. It tells the story of entrepreneurs and innovators seeking to create businesses that put people before profits and contribute to creating a better community.
