Film night: Power of Community

When: Friday 17 February, 7:30pm

Where: WEA, 59 Gloucester St (opposite Art Gallery)

We will show a few short videos about how and why to transition away from oil, and a longer film “The Power of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil”, about when Cuba lost access to Soviet oil in the early 1990’s.

Cuba faced an immediate crisis – feeding the population – and an ongoing challenge: how to create a new low-energy society. Cuba transitioned from large, fossil-fuel intensive farming to small, less energy-intensive organic farms and urban gardens, and from a highly industrial society to a more sustainable one.

Discussion and a cuppa after the films.
Koha very much appreciated.
