Film Screening + Discussion: Surviving Progress

Green Visions Film Series

15.01.2015 at 20:00 

Location: Gasteig München, Vortragssaal der Bibliothek, Rosenheimer Str. 5

Directors: Mathieu Roy & Harold Crooks

Is progress always a good thing? Can the human mind come to terms with the rapid pace of technological change over the last centuries? Can we continue on a course of unlimited growth? Or should our watchwords for the decades to come be “reduction” and “restriction”? Scientists, philosophers, activists, and researchers present their perspectives.

A discussion with Christian Schwägerl, author of the book Menschenzeit, will follow the screening.

The film will be shown in English.

Free and open to the public.

Reservations: Call 089 / 48 00 66-239. Reservations are only valid until 19:50.
