We're pleased to welcome Richard Heinberg to Vancouver as part of the CoDev World Community Film Festival. Richard is one of the world’s most effective exponents of the urgent need to move away from fossil fuels and towards a post-growth economy.
Author of 10 books, including 2010′s The End of Growth, his wry, unflinching approach addresses challenges such as climate change, peak oil, economic instability, and food insecurity.
He exposes the tenuousness of our current way of life, while exploring governmental responses and promising grassroots models in community resilience, including the Transition Town Movement and the Occupy Movement. Heinberg offers a radical vision for a truly sustainable future.
More information about Richard Heinberg can be found on his website: richardheinberg.com.
Admission to the festival opening lecture is by donation and the event is cosponsored by Village Vancouver and Vancouver Peak Oil. You don't need to attend the film festival to attend Richard's presentation. (Though we encourage you to go - it's a great festival!)
