Beyond the Classroom presents the documentary, "The Great Squeeze"

When: Tuesday, January 29, 2013 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Event Type(s): Movie/Film/Video

"The Great Squeeze challenges us to learn from history and transition towards a more sustainable economy that values our environment. Our current paradigm of unending economic growth has become a threat to our prosperity and the long-term viability of humans on this planet. The film is a call to action and gives us a framework for the changes that must take place. We are faced with great challenges, but unlike the rest of the living world, we have the unique ability to adapt and decide our fate and the fate of most of the biosphere, for better or worse, in order to survive the human project."

This film is part of the "Beyond Sustainable Development: Global and Local Perspectives" seminar series sponsored by Beyond the Classroom Living & Learning Program.
