6pm, Thursday 23rd March.
EcoSoc invites you to a film screening of 'A simpler way: Crisis as opportunity (2016)' — An inspiring film about a community in Australia and their decision to reduce their environmental impact by living more sustainably.
We will also have a short presentation on two zero-waste apps ('Olio' and 'Good to go') and how they can be used to by london residents to tackle food waste issues. We will be providing food for the audience which has been collected using these apps!
Afterwards, we will be heading to Waterfront to for a few drinks and to continue our discussion on topics raised in the film, as well as sustainable living in general.
What does it mean to live simply? For this diverse group of conscientious citizens, it means that you reconnect to the natural world, conserve your resources, and peel back the extravagances, economic shackles and unsustainable definitions of success in the modern industrialized world. In their tiny homes hand-crafted from largely recycled materials, they seek the purity that comes from a return to the basics.
