Please come and join G.A.L.A. for a screening of Fixing the Future, a PBS documentary detailing the potential of localized economies’ ability to lead us into a bright future. The screening is being co-sponsored by G.A.L.A and Ossipee Main Street. It will be held on Thursday, January 24th at 6:30 pm at Ossipee Main Street (10 Moultonville Road Center Ossipee). There will be a reception held at the Sap House Meadery, directly following the screening, for the community to come together, socialize, and discuss the ideas brought forward by the film.
The film’s host and editor, David Brancaccio, is the host of National Public Radio’s Market Place and NOW. In the film, Brancaccio travels the United States in search of “economic innovation on Main Street”. Brancaccio explains how this innovation will lead us into the economy of the future. The business initiatives highlighted in the film include worker owned co-ops in Cleveland and Austin; a time bank in Portland, ME; community gardens near Philadelphia; citizen owned banks in North Dakota; local currency in Baltimore, and benefit corporations.
Hope to see you there!
