Tuesday, March 10, 2015

7:30 PM - Rm 216 Living/Learning Commons
A brief discussion of the themes will follow the screening. Captioning provided.

About the film: The Economics of Happiness features a chorus of voices from six continents calling for systemic economic change through a worldwide movement for economic localization.

About the Social Justice Film Series: Brought to you by the Center for Cultural Pluralism, the Spring 2015 Social Justice Film Series theme is "Internationalizing Social Justice" and offers participants an educational opportunity to explore through film and subsequent discourse issues related to social justice and diversity through a transnational lens. Participants will examine and deconstruct the boundary between domestic and international views on identity and justice. Films selected for the Social Justice Film Series have one viewing and are generally screened up to a half hour and followed by an engaged discourse on the themes by the participants. To be respectful of your time, it is our hope that this entire educational program does not exceed ninety minutes. 

About the Center for Cultural Pluralism: Established in 1999 at the Allen House, the Center for Cultural Pluralism (CCP) is dedicated to helping UVM achieve its core mission to provide quality multicultural education in order to equip faculty, staff and students with the competencies necessary to function in a diverse world. Focusing on the complex intersections of issues of culture and social justice, the Center offers a unique “Cultural Hub” where individuals and organizations working on behalf of cultural diversity and social justice issues can collaborate and coalesce.
