Details

Dave Gardner is a man who dreams of the day when growth is no longer society’s main goal, when wellbeing is prioritized over GDP, when civilization becomes sustainable. “GrowthBusters: Hooked on Growth” is a documentary that follows Dave as he uncovers and explores the root of the multiple crises we’re facing today: our civilization’s addiction to infinite growth on a finite planet. This documentary holds up a mirror to our culture, our values and our daily behavior. It will provoke much thought and discussion about the destructive addictions and myths we must leave behind, as well as the values we need to embrace, in order to become a sustainable civilization.   Highlighting stories of hope, inspiration and alternatives to growth (including Transition Towns), Dave’s narrative will encourage people to actively pave the way for a better future. Help him get this important film seen by hosting a screening of “GrowthBusters: Hooked on Growth”, following its release, on October 25th. To book a screening, to find a screening in your area, or for more information, please contact: screenings@growthbusters.org
