• Monday 17 October 2016: 7pm, at The Grafton (upstairs), 20 Prince of Wales Road, NW5 3LG: "Demain' (Tomorrow): the documentary". Transition Kentish Town invites you to join us in a viewing of this inspiring documentary. It's a positive response to the global ecological crisis and a celebration of local people all over the world who are creating innovative solutions. Responding to warnings that the planet may be on the verge of a mass extinction cycle unseen since the last Ice Age, ecological rights advocate Cyril Dion and actress-filmmaker Melanie Laurent set out on a multinational voyage. During their trip, they met community pioneers who are reinventing agriculture, energy, the economy, democracy and education. By shedding light on these positive and progressive initiatives, they document the emergence of what could be tomorrow's world.
"It's fascinating how, as a species and as a culture, we are brilliant at imagining our own extinction. We make films about whether we'll all be wiped out by zombies or nuclear bombs or diseases or robots or aliens. But where are the films about us actually turning something round and... solving the problem? We don't really have those films. Human beings are so ingenious and creative, we could do extraordinary things, but for that we need to tell ourselves those stories." Rob Hopkins, founder of Transition Towns

• Thursday 15th September (7:30-9:30pm): Positive Money, Waterloo: "Values, Wealth and Money". Many of us find it hard to fully comprehend what money is. Movements like Positive Money have helped to dispel some of the illusions which surround it, including the idea that it is just a commodity ~ notes and coins. There is also growing awareness that Banks do not simply take money in and lend it out again; they are directly involved in the creation of money. But the misunderstanding of wealth also causes endless confusion in economics, and that relates back to the understanding of value - what do we truly value? Chris Todhunter will attempt to throw some light on the three interconnected concepts of Values, Wealth & Money in a brief presentation followed by discussion. Attendance is FREE, full address details: Godly Play Room (aka Crypt Meeting Room), St John's Church, 73 Waterloo Road, London SE1 8TY. The Godly Play Room is located downstairs in the Crypt area of the Church. To gain access, do not enter via the Church's main doors, instead look for the door on the left-hand side. If it is closed, please press the buzzer for the Godly Play Room. There is no requirement to do any background reading before attending, but Chris has listed some books which inspired his talk: 1) Between debt and the Devil (Adair Turner). 2) Other People's Money (Alan Kay). 3) The Science of Political Economy (Henry George). 4) The Wealth of Nations (Adam Smith). Look forward to seeing you there. Host: Sasha Karim. This meetup is for everyone interested in how money system works and how it could be changed to be constructive and socially beneficial. Come and feel free to invite your friends who might be interested too. Everyone is welcome! Details/Booking
