What if working together for the good of all was the most common
Transition Kamloops invites you to explore different ways of doing business, ways that put people and planet on an equal level as profit, in corporate ventures. The upcoming Films For Change screening of A New Economy, sponsored by TRU Sustainability Office and hosted by Transition Kamloops, follows seven interwoven stories of organizations moving towards a more cooperative,
revolutionary, people-friendly future.
A cooperative brewery started by a group of beer-drinking friends in London, ON; a laser physicist
developing open-source heart-saving technology in Montreal, QB; a social enterprising farmer in
Vancouver, BC are demonstrating how businesses can blend economic and social needs of a
functioning new economy, with cooperative values and principles at its base.
A New Economy will be shown Wednesday January 30 at the TRU Alumni Clocktower Theatre.
Doors open at 6:30 pm and show starts at 7 pm. Admission is free, donations gratefully accepted,
organic popcorn is by donation.
Show run time is 45 minutes. A panel discussion with local economic experts will follow the film.
Join us as we further explore cooperative and alternative business models with the field experts.
Anyone interested in advancing ideas of can join the Transition Local Economy Group.
